Shine

Shine.
Though you’re broken
And aching,
Shine.

You can do it,
Though you may not
Want to.

Shine.
Though it may
Seem impossible,
Shine.

You never know who’s watching,
Though it seems that
No one is.

Shine.
Though it’s hard,
And it might hurt,
Shine.

Someone needs
Your light,
Though you’re broken.

Shine.
Though you’re aching,
You can do it.
Shine.

In response to the Daily Post prompt for January 9, and inspired in no small part by the song “Smile” (music by Charles Chaplin, lyrics by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons).
