Light in the Forest


United States

Behind the filter I am Sylvia.

Behind the likes and "thumbs up" I am Lucy.

Before the mascara I am a daughter.

Named by my free spirited parents'

Name sake of shimmering light in the forest. 

I don't appriciate my freckles, 

But they're here and seem to be happy about it. 

My eyes are of snakes and swirls.

Navy blue sea floor with lime green divers.

I have a wide smile,

With permanently up-turned corners.

I hope that when people look at how I express myself

They see the light in the forest.
