They scream "Silence!"

They want me to stop.
Wear away in the cold.
Fade to black.
Be absent.

They tell me I'm of no value.
They say I stand for nothing.
That I can not grow.
I will never shine.

They disappear.
I am alone.

I am cautious.

I call for their attention.
Demand to be noticed.
To be seen in the distance.

I warn them, I will not hide.
I will keep from their darkness.
I will be a cloudless beacon.
My value, that of gold.

I tell them I will always shine.
