Can She Find It?
the day is awoke with a chill from the warmth
she awoke with a brightness from the darkness
moved by the light and the the thoughts of warmth
she arrives at the source of her state
but today is a good day
because today is the day that she gets to shine
shine brighter than the rest
but the shining hurts
its not what she wanted
she wanted to be dull, to have a straight answer
where she was is not right for her
but now she doesnt know
she asked for a sign
she gets to glow and tower
but it was hard to get here
and she worked hard to try
and she was successful
but what does it mean?
is it the right way to go?
should she be doing this?
or is she holding herself back?
what glories could she see if she were somewhere else?
her peers say no
her parents say yes
which direction to go?
nobody listens to her
they have their own way
it is her problem but she is lost deep under their talking
small like a swimmer at the bottom of a lake of opinions
but she sees a way out
a way to breathe
a way to release the pressure
but she needs another option
this one is closing off
there isnt much time
and she ruined it yesterday, what about tomorrow?
will she still have this support then?
her light is dimming
and she no longer shines
people watch as she dulls
and they try to help
some do though, some do so much
but she was in for a suprise,
a wall set up so long ago is broken and she is freed
she uses the bricks to get closer to the surface
but it is not enough
it will be long before she finds
long before she realizes she has had it
long before she lets it out
and she knows there is hope
but can she find it?
