In 10th grade English class

We were assigned a conversation

To look at a lyric

And explain its composition


I chose your song, Video

And I’m mighty glad I did

You called yourself a queen

Worthy, and “our Creator didn’t make no mistakes”

I loved the words you used

And the emotions you internally roused


Dear Miss India.Arie

I came across I am Light

And was mesmerized by your tone

Your glow, timbre, and conviction when you sang that last verse

“Divinity defined” and “God on the inside”

How beautiful the message of your sweet soul


Thank you for being a powerful instrument

And sharing your gift

You spread the joy of lyric

And sing true verse into our dear hearts


I Am Light (India.Arie)
