There are things in life
that make you smile

Find them
find those things and cling to them

Love them, gravitate toward them, relish and relive them
over and over again.

There are things in life
that make you cry

Find them
find those things and wring them

Pour your heart into them, lean into them, bleed and breathe into them
let them in and let them win.

There are things in life
that make you write

Find them
find those things and sing them

Feel them, hold them and mold them, bare them and share them
to save others from their smothers, bothers, mothers, fathers.

Your life is your light
Shine it
Shine on
Shine
in all the time you can find
Shine
your light
your life.
