It's alright to shine
When you have something to say
That makes the world brighter
Sing out and let us all hear

You can do great things
When you put your heart into them
The world is at your feet
Waiting for you to shine like its never seen

Open your heart—let go of fear
Tell us what you want to say
Show us how you'll make your way

For my son on the day he completed his Eagle Scout project—for this day and as he graduates high school and begins adulthood.


  1. This is a great poem for our graduating seniors to hear!
