Rapping About a World at Risk

Step Into The Sunshine My Friend


Step into the sunshine my friend,
let it kiss your face and refine your spirit into a golden bar.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
come out of the shadows of your past,

emerge as a saintly being clothed in angelic white.

Step into the sunshine my friend;
may the great sun inflame your soul

with its magnificent grace and transformative power.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
wipe the darkness from your eyes
and see what miracles the new day brings.
Believe in all the light you see.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
let the radiant beams of love ignite your passions;
and your heart will bust forth like an exploding star
washing the galaxy with positive energy.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
receive the fantastic glories the day brings to you
and revel in them all.

Step into the sunshine my friend;
bathe yourself in the warm river of humanity.
Recognize yourself for the first time in its watery mirror.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
witness the delicate flower break through the hard crust of earth,
and marvel as its fragrant bud blooms.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
experience the glow of a child’s face,
and let them lead you to the next 10,000 sunrises.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
feel the soft rays touch your wounds;
know how the daylight can heal.

Step into the sunshine my friend,
smell the ocean heave against the climbing sun
and listen to the wisps of the meadowland’s verdant fragrance.

Step into the sunshine my friend;
see the sparrow take flight toward the light,
watch its tireless wings glide on a blanket of rising thermal air.

Step into the sunshine my friend.

Note: Risk Rapper is still enraptured in the ebullience of Obama’s Inauguration. Though not composed for the event the above poem captures some of the current sentiments of Risk Rapper. We will be posting on current events tomorrow. Cheers, RR
