    Shine On Me by Venus Connelly

    Through that small crack I once again see light
    Though I still find comfort in the night
    What was once a land of beauty and wonder
    Became a battlefield and went completely under
    Fighting in total rage
    But now I am turning the page
    My dark days
    Will gradually come into the sun’s rays
    I sit in my castle
    Void of all hassle
    Licking my wounds deep
    But I no longer weep
    I will venture out one day soon
    Clearing all that was strewn
    I thought at one point I would die
    But now I am starting to see a blue sky
    I proud to say I fought with all my might
    And learned that I’ll be alright
    I will remove my dark cloke
    And rise from the smoke
    Maybe not today or tomorrow
    But trust and believe I am rising from my sorrow
    I won’t continue to wear my mask
    And in the light I shall bask
