Advice From the Wicked

By Jesi Scott

 

Wicked I am and

Wicked I be,

Or so says all

Of the publicity.

 

But evil is

As evil does…

And you shouldn’t judge

Because

 

You never know

What’s behind the door.

You don’t know

What’s gone before.

 

Truth is never

As plain as it seems,

And people change,

Or so time deems.

 

So keep in mind that

Evil and good

Might not appear

As they should.

 

Sometimes the right thing

Can be wrong,

And sometimes the wicked

Have been right all along.

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.
