Shine On

(A Kyrielle Sonnet written for OctPoWriMo 2020 – Day 1)

There, there, dear child, don’t be let down
Times are hard, this ain’t time to frown
Shine your light as long as you can
You will pave the way for your clan

Tiny shoulders burdened by fate
I know your pain, but don’t you wait
Trust in your true strength, that’s the plan
You will pave the way for your clan

Falling and rising, you will learn
To shelter the weak as you burn
As destined, just shine on, young man
You will pave the way for your clan

There, there, dear child, don’t be let down
You will pave the way for your clan.

Thank you for reading😊😊
