In Their Shadow

Dulled by comparison. That's my problem.
Whenever there are bright lights shining all the time,
No one can see my glow, because of all of their shine.
I can't hold up to the standard they set.
If I was around those with dull lights,
I may be albe to show them, I really am bright.

Well, maybe I'm not.
Maybe that's the reason no one sees my shine, that I'm really not special.
I guess we'll never know, becuase I will not leave the others' glow.
Afraid of what's out there, and what I don't know.
So we'll say they just can't see me,
When I'm surrounded by all this beauty.
That I really am shining.

Awesome! I loved your metaphor of everyone's bright lights and how you are afraid to leave the safety of the group! Excellent! I had to read it twice just to make sure I understood it, but it was not a chore, it was good each time I read it! Excuse me for a moment while I go and read it once more...:D Great Job and Keep Writing!!! :):):);)
