Come closer
look with eyes not clouded
a darkening world awaits you
without you they are lost.
Do not hide from your own destiny
remove the shadow from your soul
and realize you are the one
it is your voice they hear.
Go out and make a difference
no matter how very small,
to you it may mean nothing
to others it means all.
Come out of your shell and speak your words
become who you're meant to be.
You are the strongest shield
against the darkened sea.
