Shine Where You Stand

The girls¬†gossiped all around him, wondering why he was there. He stood solitary and alone, far enough away that they could pretend he wasn’t the focus of their words. He stood straight and tall, he wasn’t about to let their poisonous whispers bother him. So he was different? So he would never really fit in?

So what?

There was more to life than being one of the crowd.

He could shine just fine all on his own.

Watching the clouds go slowly,
Alone and yet not.
Life is what you make it, choose.
