A gleaming in the moonlight
The only light in the dark sky
Hinting at what will be coming
Slowly taking its true form

A small bud on the sidewalk
The only green on a busy street
A phenomenon for where it is
Yawning open for all to see

A young puppy next to its mother
The smallest one in its litter
Stretching to open his eyes
To see the world for the first time

The darkness surrounding the light
Attempts to engulf it whole
One speck of the light
Against the rest of the world

The crowd around the bud
Stepping on it again and again
One small bud
Against the rest of the world

His bigger brothers and sisters
Pushing the little pup away
One little puppy
Against the rest of the world

But the light will fight
And the bud will push
And the pup will surely win
The attention he deserves

And one day the world will see

The light becoming the sun
And the bud becoming a flower
The pup becoming a fighter
And the little girl becoming me

I absolutely love this piece of work!  I like how you described the early stages of life and how life will struggle, but in the end, will persevere.  It has a very beautiful meaning!  Thanks for sharing!
