I have written and published many poems all my life, including a self-published poetry book.
Partially in the limelight,
The moon is on the line
In the black sky like a neon kite.
Finding her brilliance from within,
The moon pushed her way through
The surrounding dark clouds
Trying to tie her back from view.
She cut the ropes to her darkness,
And left her past behind.
The moon glowed at her new life
Where she is no longer in a bind.
Shining out - glowing like a star,
She knows she is traveling far.
