It is the best job and the worst job in the world. Every day, I bring the daylight. I am the hope each morning. I defeat the darkness.
But only in a way.
I also illuminate the darkness. I expose death, destruction, sorrow, pain. And there is no victory in this. They call it a sunbreak when I shine through the clouds with light shafts that look like divinity. In reality, I am hiding from the sorrow of this broken planet, seeking to shade my eyes as my own heart breaks.
I don’t know how much longer I can endure.
