Basically, the tale of a young man, of whom wants to reach the Sun, to take possession of it. So, he is a man of greed, and does not accept that the Sun is suspended in the sky for a reason, does not see the importance of night, feels the day should be everlasting, feels he must become a saviour for the people, quite arrogant. Of greed, he dies, and sees no night- he thinks his goal has been accomplished, but yet, he sees no Sun either - perhaps he is in "limbo", purgatory, and God in turn, is deciding what place he belongs in, for the life he has led.

The young man followed the
Burning sun,
And followed it still once
Day was done,
He clambered up the
Highest tree,
He could not reach, yet
He could see,
The cresent of foil in
Suspense of the sky,
Why not the sun he
Wondered why,
The moon in all its
Silvery splendour,
A ghastly night it
Could not mend, or
Drown the world
With angelic light,
The young man sought
Immortality of the rays,
To protect the world from
A midnight malaise!
He was the type to hunt
Down death,
To stand his ground with
Hungry breath,
And once the nightfall
Vanished and left,
He felt he was the
Saviour of light,
But he saw no sun,
No sphere so bright,
Not so much a
Saviour as such,
But a martyr of
Greed,
Bitten off more than
A hand could feed.
