It was difficult to pull together my thoughts and write a cohesive piece but I tried my best. I think everyday we are all just trying our best and that’s what I’m trying to convey in this poem.

Thanks for reading!

Shiny things

Maybe I am better than I thought I was

Do you know what I mean?

We've all compared ourselves to the shiniest things

But, today when I looked in the mirror

And tucked away my aged convictions

It almost looked like the moon was staring back at me


When did this happen?

When did I change?

From a jester, to a queen?

I was afraid to stand tall

Back ached from the constant cowering

But now I open my mouth to speak

No fear of how my declarations are sounding

When did this happen?

When did I change?

When did I become the storm and the wave?

I feared the fire

I feared the fall

I compared myself to the shiniest of them all

But now it's happened

Now I've changed

I don't fear the thunder or the rain

I'm emptying my pockets of the self deprecation

With which I used to cling

Today I looked in the mirror and realized

Maybe I too, am a shiny thing
