SHINERS

Inside you lives a fire that burns
As bright as you’ll allow
And those who fear your flame
Will try to take it from you now

You’re born a shining spirit
You can choose the shadowed cold
But one requires no courage
And the other needs the bold

I’ve seen a spirit broken
And I’ve seen the spirit rise
When it comes down to your shining
There can be no compromise
