Diamond in the Ruff

My name means only one thing. Moon. The huge rock in the sky you see every night is what I’m named after.
But it fits me. I am a moon. Sure I’m not a rock in the sky, but we are alike.
I’m mostly alone, trying to float by in life but everyone always draws attention to me, until I open up and let everything out.
I don’t glow on my own. The moon’s light is a reflection of the sun. It depends on it. I need the support of others to realize I actually matter in life.
I don’t want to go through life knowing my name is just a label that someone put a meaning to, based upon the past. I make my name mean me. Not just what people think they know, or assume. A meaning worth the time and effort to figure out.
Selena, a beautiful person at heart.
Someone succeeding in her goals.
Not alone and depressed like people think I am.
I’m the one you wouldn’t expect to make it to the top. The one who makes her dreams come true, not just because I want to, but because I can.
