Step out of the shadows.
They’re not the night
that hides you,
and they’re not the light,
that makes you shine.

In the shadows you are
not a rebel and
not unseen, but
perhaps unnoticed.

Step through the gates,
I know they appear narrow
and it may seem they will
close on you or collapse,
that just by looking at them
you are holding them together
but as soon as you take that
step they will fall apart.

All it takes is just one
first step to go into the
light that will illuminate
what you have to share
with the world.
