Shine

This is my moment,
To have, to hold,
To take risks, be brave,
Creative and bold.

This is my moment,
To stand up and be seen,
Open my heart,
And give all of me.

This is my chance,
To change the world,
Release the genuine,
Natural Pearl.

This is my time,
To swing from the vine,
To leap and to climb,
My moment to shine.
