The Silver Chain
Life is a silver chain,
Our soul is the pendant.
As a pendant, we long to look lovely and glamorous,
As some do, while others become unattractive and dark.
The beautiful pendant is bright and brings joy to a darkened room,
While the dark pendant screams hate and strikes fear into all whom it meets.
The world is full of pendants,
Yet only those that hang on the chain of Christ will glow,
While those on the chain of selfishness will grow unattractive day by day.
The one who wears the necklace has the choice,
Hide, or abide in the ways of it’s pendant.

I'm Emily: writer, literary scholar, and lover of beautiful things. I drink strong black tea, play excessive amounts of piano, and I will always use the Oxford comma religiously. I'm a grad school student heartily engrossed in literature, writing, and all things devoted to the art of story. I'm quite the philosopher—always asking odd questions. Those questions become stories, stories tell us who we are, and I don't think I'll ever stop writing them. By God's grace, I will lend my voice to those millennia-old academic discussions and unveil truth, beauty, and love for all the world to observe.
I am delighted that you're here to listen to my musings. Enjoy.
