The Son Also Rises

It was 6:47 p.m. last year, it was hot and humid and the streets were empty, it was then that the Gods caught a lightning bolt out of the universe and flung it directly into my heart, changing the way forever how i looked at blue skies, bumblebees, butterflies, kitchen sinks and rink-a-links, they introduced me to emotions i didn't know existed, taught me to worry, taught me to laugh, re-introduced me to this thing called living and for the last 365 days i couldn't tell you what the 30 some odd years before that were like, cuz the universe took an odd twist last July 1 and since then i grew up, grew old, grew young and learned that the Son also rises and each day he smiles and his old man practically weeps with joy at the sight of it, like the lump in my throat as i type... happy birthday kid, happy birthday.
