Rising



author's note:

As they say in the movies: "based on a true story".


RISING

Terrified
by the power of my life
I tried to bury myself

but as I felt the weight
press down upon my chest
love cried out against
such a death.

Now I work to resurrect:

though still afraid, I slowly accept
the life I've been given to live.
