Release That Joy And Feed Us - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Overcome that struggle you have,
To mask your hidden pride...
And peek from inside,
That casting shadow.

Free yourself from this false image.
You keep displayed.
For fear someone may steal,
Your quest...
To shine with exhilarating light.
The basking in this ray you gave...
Is missed by others,
Who enjoyed it when they bathed.

Overcome that struggle you have,
To mask your hidden pride...
And peek from inside,
That casting shadow.

Your flower blooming in radiance is missed.
Restore the courage within you that still lives.
Resist like you have...
From all of those conflicts had in your past!
And let us share and witness,
That which you unselfishly give!

The 'you' you 'are' from within is desperately needed.
To help assist all darkness from us to leave,
We plead.

Come out! Come out!
And glow like that bright star you are!
Come out! Come out!
Release that joy and feed us.
Please don't let us starve.
