Pebbles on a beach

Pebbles on the beach
Thousands of them
Millions of them
There they are
Pilled up

Pebbles on the beach
Waiting for the tide
When the tide comes
Water will cover them
They will shine

Pebbles on the beach
The tide goes
The sun comes
The water evaporates
They no longer shine

Pebbles on the beach
We can all be
Waiting for something
Waiting for it
To make us shine

There among the pebbles
A beautiful shell
It’s different
It doesn’t need water
It shines itself

We can believe
We are a pebble
We can believe we are a shell
It is a choice we make
Shine your light

Brighten by your example

Sharing your light with others
Sing your song so others can hear the beauty of your voice
Write your book so we can wonder at the lovely story
Dance your steps for others to enjoy

Make art for others to cherish
Create your ideas for others to behold
Be you and shine among us
Share your kindness for life around

We all have a bright light inside
Collectively we can shine
Together the world can be one
The light always takes away the dark

Share your bright light
Don’t fear what others will say
We have only one time to shine
Don’t miss your chance to brighten by your example
