Dawn's Light - Poem by Patricia Kelley
Artist that can only see's 10 pence size at a time, uses magnifying glass to paint pictures.
How can a legally blind woman paint pictures?
Angels' say she hears the scriptures.
They say that the picture is so pretty, that it brings tears to your eyes.
Angels' say she's guided by the wise.
She humbly cries.
The contrast she uses of light and darkness is what makes the picture, so unique.
She proves that she isn't so weak.
She once questioned the fact if she could do it!
Angrily stomping her feet, with tears rolling down hers eyes, shouting and pouting, I can't do this, it is too hard.
She proves otherwise.
They said, the first time, she tried, she cried.
How many times have you been stopped by pride?
Angels' say, she stomped her feet on the ground giving up, crumbling up the sketch, but something inside of her pulled her together and said, I can do this.
How many times have you conquered the unexpected?
How many times has your work been rejected?
How many times did you receive the expected?
Angels' say, she uses her personal handicap to highlight the picture, pulling it all together from the shadows of darkness seeing dawn's light.
Guided by her conscious,
Hearing the voice inside saying, I am an artist!
Not a captive of darkness.
I'm a Daughter of Brightness.
I'm a child of God.
What gift has God given you?
