Night and Day (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

Perpetual light
a luminous sight
searing with might
on this glorious night
so heavenly bright
steady in flight
a fluttering sprite

of endearing height
in glittering white
the shadows you fight
with an arrogant bite

Exceptional ray
a spirited way
all on display
on this beautiful day
so pretty in play
in delicate sway
a flapping jay
keeping at bay
the dampening spray
in feathery grey
on wicked you prey
with a groundless bray

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
