I am the  SUN

  not alive
and yet…   not dead

I have been
for billions of  years

  I will be
for billions of  years more

I am the  SUN
also known as  SOL
by the inhabitants
of  the third planet out
Earth as they call it

I am formed
of  a magical substance
that provides all light
and warmth to Earth

no
Life
would exist there
without Me

some worship Me
…I do not care

  some study Me
…but they do not know

if  you were to ask Me
what do I feel?

  I would not say proud

  I would say…     fulfilled
for what more could I want
than to give Life?

I  do not tire
though I never rest

  I am…
therefore Life is

  a grave responsibility
that gives Me reason to be

I am the  SUN

  not alive
and yet…   not dead

  I am needed

  and that sustains Me
