Sometimes the Light is too bright~

The rays outdo themselves in brilliant glory and human eyes can not bear to gaze upon the sunbeams...it hurts too much. My sunglasses are with me constantly- battered, scatched, and the end of one arm broken- I can not survive the full sun without them. I simply can not see in an abundance of light.

Today, with my sunglasses on, I saw majestic beams splintering out from behind a heavy cloud. Foolishly- I took my glasses off for a better look- only to quickly glance away from the brightness. I felt only a burning pain...and saw nothing.

Unlike a gorgeous painting, or a river view- we can't get closer to the light for a better look.

Sometimes it's simply too bright...

And some pain is too intense...

Some truths too heavy to bear...

And all journeys must come to an end.

don't worry if you can't find me...

I am still here~

Like the commercial says, we'll leave the light on for you. We'll just make sure it's not too bright.

how true, like stars, sometimes you have to try terribly hard not to focus, to see them
