Lighthouse II.

Dsc02480by Michelle Seyner11 Sep 2020

As a kid,
I wanted to be
larger than life,
like my Grammie.
Her inner light was
like a lighthouse -
visible from miles
away, even with
your eyes closed.
But I can only
be myself:
I'm more
like a fading star
peeking through
a clouded night -
just for a second.
I've never been
quite tall enough
to be a lighthouse.
