She lights her way with her sunny smile,
while carrying heavy rain in her blue eyes.
Silencing the thunderstorm in her heart,
she walks on – as the world sees her blindly.
Creating words: from her heart to her hands.
Can the world not see how big are her plans?
She gently balances her love on her shoulders;
using her wisdom to overcome life’s hurdles.
She can light her way with her sunny smile,
but the heavy rain is dragging her down.
Her thunderstorm sings quietly out loud,
as she walks on – leaving behind her crown.
