I have never seen the sun

I have never, in my life, seen the sun. No I am not blind, but every attempt I have made to look at the sun has been a failure. You see, each time I try, the light is so bright that my human eyes are unable to see past the light, to the surface of the sun.

Even though I have never seen the sun, I do believe that it exists. Why? Because without the sun, I would not be able to see anything at all. I believe in the sun, not because I can see it, but because of the light that it sheds on everything else.
One day, I will have new eyes and will be able to see the sun, but until then I am content to live in the knowledge of its presence and walk in its light.
