Poem: Shine

The world is spinning, and the light is going down.

The hope for today is spinning through the air.

Helpless wonder draws a circle around your face.

The shouts and the stares are coming from ones you love dear.

The things they say are whispering in your ear.

Some are good, and some are the words you dare not to hear.

Yet you keep moving forward.

In hopes of breaking through the noise.

The dreams are still burning a fire deep in your soul.

The water they pour cannot put them out.

They just grow stronger with each drop.

This is your time to shine, and you know it.

The only question is are you going to take it.

The answer is up to you.
