Let There Be Light

Illumination

By Jesi Scott

β€œWhat do you see when you look at me”

I wrote that, once upon a time,

And here I am asking those words again

because

You underestimate me still;

And I continue to

Prove you wrong.

I’m no transformer who can save the world

But there’s more to me than meets the eye;

If you only judge a picture with one glance

Then you miss a chance

To get to know the true beauty I hold inside.

So see me in all my glory,

I can outshine the sun,

And I refuse to hide my dark side

Because the night is beautiful in its depths,

And you should remember the true purpose of light

Is not to eliminate the darkness but

Illuminate its truth,

and give hope where none may exist.

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
