Shine Through the Night

Shine+Through+the+Night

The following is a “Reverse Poem.” Read it from top to bottom, and then read it from bottom to top. It will have two different meanings.

Sometimes we have to break

before we can shine

We may not be glowsticks

but that statement is true

We have to let go before

we can move on

Breaking could be anything

It can be crying,

letting the anger out

even having a rant.

It’s okay to break

It doesn’t mean you are

weak

It means that you finally

let it out

You will feel better

Once you let it out

You can

Shine

After all

the stars can’t shine without the dark.

Breaking is not bad

it helps move on

It helps you shine.

Shine through the

Night

Be brighter than the

Sun

Sparkle like the

Stars

against the night sky because

Sometimes we have to break

before we can shine
