I used to be afraid.
Last summer I kept out the sun.
I held it between my hands and very rarely I let it out.

I was afraid to let my sun shine.
The clouds, they would block out the rays.
People curse the sun.
I cared.

But now i'm not afraid.
This summer i'll open my palms to the sky.
I'll let the sun bask on me.
Even through rain,I now know the sun is still there.

That was really good! You should fix up the grammar errors and send it back to Teen Ink. I'm sure it will make it to the magazine.
