Standing in the Shade...


Sick of being dark and cold,

I want to stand in the light

Where I can absorb the energy I need

To keep fighting this fight,

I’ve allowed myself to be surrounded by negative

When the positive is how I feed,

Starving myself of essential nutrients,

To pay bills, coexist and not lead,

I know how to find my happy place

And I’ve allowed my exile too long,

I need only to remind myself more often,

That the shade for me is wrong,

Although the dark looks good on me,

to stand in the sun is my free,

For I am no creature of the night,

I am a child of the light,

Smiling in the light is more me,
