you claim to be the sun

a lioness and goddess

born from fire and flames.

I do not doubt you.

your beliefs are your own.

yet do not be so contentious

so audacious to paint yourself

in such resplendent glory.

we both know better.

if you are built from ashes

why do you claim to burn

at the memory of me?

my ghost should not leave

scorch marks upon a goddess

of the sun.
don't you remember? I'm the one who taught you how to shine.
