There's A Light

There's A Light

A Poem by Lexi Nicole

There's a light somewhere inside...


There’s a light
Somewhere inside
But I don’t know how to find it

They say that light
Is burning bright
Am I too blind to see?

The fire burns and swells
I feel it getting hotter
Embers spark against my ribs
That light’s getting stronger

There’s a light
I feel it fighting
Never will it rest

I've looked through a few of your pieces now and I've gotta say, you are a wonderful poet. Everything works so well together and it's a great pleasure to read. I like this one the most so far, can't really explain why. Just connects to me. Keep up the great work.

And the thing is do you want it to come out? I think we should shine like a light sometimes and be proud of it.
Very good poem.
