Light Comes When It Comes

  

Shyly hanging her head

gawky, not wanting attention

insecure about her rundown neighborhood

she hangs back from the spotlight

yet her emerging beauty

glows above the rest.

One day soon

she will lift her chin

and smile on the world

and have her moment in the sun.
