"Water droplets through the sky
refracting and reflecting light
produce the moonbow seen tonight,"
or so says Science when asked why.

We know the real reason, though,
why this evening's all aglow:
finally, you did believe.
Now the darkness starts to leave.

You only had to peer inside,
embrace those powers that you hide,
accept you are amazing, strong.
You: the hero all along.
