There hides a Star in Start
That makes all Starters Stars
As there are etched in many a heart
Stories of glories, veiled by silent scars.
When nights of uncertainty falls
Stars twinkle with glamorous smiles,
Beam diligent rays; When duty calls,
Like an army they rise, subduing miles.
When Life’s storm hard hit
Vultures hide, while eagles rise;
Raw gold go through intense heat
Before its Brilliance stuns all eyes.
Why sit on the sickening seat of self-pity
And whine about like a starving swine,
When with the airworthy wings of wisdom
You can, like the eagle, soar into stardom?
Why hide behind the dark cloud of obscurity
When bright rays of popularity beckons;
Why merely exist as an ordinary entity
When an Extraordinary You can be awakened?
It’s time to Shine!
Many mistakes you might make,
And a thousand risks you will take,
Flaunt the broken walls of your scars,
‘til thro’ its crack, success seep like stars.
Though odds have you in its claws
And Life’s music hits an abrupt pause
Boldly turn the stories of your flaws
Into something that receives applause.
Let your Light seamlessly shine,
Till it glows with a glorious burst
That get men boozed with the wine
Of your impact; Emotions in full gust.
Let your Light brilliantly beam
Let it radiate and like wildfire spread
Power men’s cold hearts with the steam
Of your Success Story; Tell it like a creed.
Let your Light sparkle,
Let it gleam, let it glisten
Be that outstanding Oracle
Who speaks and men listen.
Let your Light slowly shimmer,
Its ray transmit and warmth radiate
Be the sought after soft sun of summer
To which all nation and Kings gravitate.
Let your Light ubiquitously ooze,
Silently seep and excellently exude
Radiant rays of stunning confidence
That make eagles out of a golden goose.
It’s time to let your light glow
Show the world what you’ve got
Rivers of regret, let it go, let it flow
Into the endless ocean of memories.
You’re invincible, unbreakable,
You’re like a diamond cut to last
You possess the energy of a rocket
Get ready to blast incredibly fast.
Your glow, like nature stays
You burn, not like the hays
Only keep your brand pure
And your light will endure.
Like the sun at dawn
It's time to rise, and Shine!
