Shining Out

Shining out,

Breaking out and into life,

The happy times,

The meaningful memories,

Silly, laughing and loving.

Amazing experiences of being.

Shining out past my limited perspectives

Breaking out into the bright and open world.

The time, in warmth, the smiling sun.

Bright and radiant.

A time for living.

Making the most.

Feeling, and helping.

Caring and solidarity and value.

Shining out. Past my demons and my shadows, into the world and being triumphant.
