Stupid Little Light

August 4, 2010

How much of my life
have I wasted waiting
for a stupid little light
to ignite?

What a petty thing to base
anything on.
What a silly thing to cherish.

Yet, when it glows
Oh, when it burns…
As though I was a part of its circuitry,
I come alive
and I shine.

What It Was; What It Wasn’t

It wasn’t bread, baked to perfection
It was flour and yeast with no direction.
