Overlooked

By: Amy Flagler

Brilliant
Beaming
Tiny sun.
Stepped on
Crushed
Disregarded by most.
Tethered deep,
Risking all to be known.
Who else holds the worth of the picked over, the left behind.
Betrayed by beauty unappreciated,
Hated for merit untold,
Singing out a gentle song to Heaven’s ear.
Available to the willing,
The ones leaning in, waiting
On your sweet call.
