Shine you Shine

Shinning my Shine

A poem from my Spirit to your dear Sister.

 

Shine your Shine you ain't got forever It's a fleeting moment between is and was I don't want to go with my shine Buried in the ground for maggots to know Do you know you got shine? That you got to give yourself permission To shine your Shine all you want and need? Why would you stark your shine in your belly? Hide it in your heart? Be grumbling all day about others shinning? While you see how well they thrive By shining all the shine they got and more? Come on love, no shine at your funeral Can replace the one you could have shined Do it for yourself, it makes you healthier And sure happier and oh so loveliest And while at it, be UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOU.

Lol my first observation was: "Why do you have two handbags? Both matching your shoes/dress too!" Okay, okay, I know that's being caught up in the glam, but I'm a girl so can't blame me, he hee :) And also two differently cut dresses in the same fabric! That shine be too much ma sister oooo! Me I go hunt for my shine too ooooo haha. Thanks Marie, you are so cute and natural. We are indeed the light of the world, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden. But as you say, we must choose to shine!

Ha ha, he hee :)
No, I meant in the photo the neck finish of your dress /top is rounded. In the video, it is square - ish. I hope that it's not an optical illusion!
