This Girl, She...

[The prompt for this poem, "This girl, she...", was provided by Liz Lamoreux.]

This Girl
This girl, she carries a bright light in her soul.
At times, she covers the radiance,
fearful of what it means to be seen.
Occasionally she shifts to high-beam,
boldly exposing herself.
Often she focuses the soft glow
on a person in need.

This girl, she struggles daily
with the light-stealing habits of ego;
mirrors used to deflect attention
from the truth.
The truth that she is okay.

This girl, she is beautiful.
She is complicated, compassionate,
and creative.
She is beyond words.

This girl, she must trust herself.
For everything she needs
is already inside of her.
