Sunshine hug

  1. A sprinkling of glitter to get me through the day
  2. To guard against the hatred that other people say
  3. A unicorn majestic to whisk me to my place
  4. To push away unkindness and clear away some space
  5. A fairy ever nimble to swish her magic wand
  6. And vanish all the loathing my openness has spawned
  7. A rainbow like a ribbon that wraps me up so snug
  8. To make me feel so special in a sunshine hug.
