Ra

A poem

I am the sun of Egypt that shines off the Nile,

The heat that warms the beds of Cleopatra

And her lovers

In the mornings when they wake up

To either life or punishment.

I shine in the sea and illuminate the moon.

I decide when the day dies.

I can turn your essence into fire

Stoke your existence

Or extinguish it.
