Did You Know Minecraft Had Such Profound Truths?

Profoundity From A Ten-Year Old

By Jesi Scott

 

“To create a magnificent city, we must create a lot of chaos.”

 

His words ring through the air with a resounding truth:

Chaos begets order,

Destruction begets construction…

We destroy to build to destroy again when our limits are reached-

Black holes in the galaxy

Swallowing up space and spitting it into the unknown.

What’s on the other side of the universe?

And time, the fourth dimension,

Is it chaos creating order that we cannot breach yet?

He builds and destroys and builds again

Creating chaos from order

To build his magnificent city.

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.
