What if the light she carries with her is there to blind those surrounding her, so that they don’t see her pain.
What if her smile shines so bright because she doesn’t want anyone to see the hurt.
What if her words light up the room, so no one will notice her darkness.
What if the light is a part of who she is, but so are the shadows.
Her loved ones tell her that her light has saved them, but little do they know that she is struggling to save herself.
The purpose of her shine is so others can survive, but no one knows that she is drowning in her own darkness…
and the light within her soul is diminishing each and every day…
