Find your light and shine on.


You are so much more

Than the darkness and depression

Which shadow you at times.


You are so much more

Than the tears and despair

Which flood you occasionally.


You are so much more

Than the fear and nightmares

Which haunt you many nights.


You are so much more

Than the anger and temper

Which take hold of your mind from time to time.


Find clear skies

And let your radiance glow.

Luminate and smile more frequently.

Laugh and play every day.


Find your light

And shine on.
