The Light

Deprived of the opportunity,
There lives a child,
She is way too far from,
Discovering her true potential and her MIGHT.

So much deprivation around her,
That she might lose her future,
For ages, her community has quested
In pursuit of their basic RIGHT

It’s only a matter of ups and downs
It’s a cycle which never ends,
For some its mere darkness,
And for some, their days’ shine BRIGHT.

She needs concern,
She needs direction,
Before she loses her courage,
Her passion and a will to FIGHT.

Yes, she is afraid, she is insecure,
But she never complains,
She only needs an opportunity to discover herself,
And gain such wisdom that,
For others, she becomes a LIGHT.
