Platinum - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Shadows only shade,
Not produce a single light...
On a path one makes.

Seeking to hide behind those shadows,
May welcome more grunts to stunt...
With additional heartaches that come to break.

Get up and shine,
Like you're platinum.
Glow and radiate.
Get up and glisten.
Like a priceless diamond.
Gleam in the mix and celebrate.

Shadows only shade,
Not produce a single light...
On a path one makes.

Keep it there,
As if you are platinum.
Share whenever you choose.
Sparkle bright like a diamond,
And strut like you've got new shoes!

Shadows only shade,
Not produce a single light...
On a path one makes.

Seeking to hide behind those shadows,
May welcome more grunts to stunt...
With additional heartaches that come to break.

Get up and shine,
Like you are platinum.
Glow and radiate.
Get up and glisten.
Like a priceless diamond.
Gleam in the mix and celebrate.

Keep it there,
And strut around like you're platinum.
Keep it there,
Radiate and celebrate.
Keep it there...
To blind the eyes like a diamond,
Fresh and priceless...
And never out of date!

Or rated as fake!

Keep it there,
Like you're platinum.
Keep it there,
To radiate!
Keep it there...
To blind the eyes like a diamond,
Fresh and priceless...
And never out of date!

Don't forget about titanium,
Your next move to make.

And strut around like you're platinum.
Keep it there,
Radiate and celebrate.
Keep it there...
To blind the eyes like a diamond,
Fresh and priceless...
And never out of date!
