Getting up – A poem for those who have fallen

Walls closing in, push back.

Stumble…

Once, twice, thrice

falling mightily, sprawling onto

image

Gaia… Terra.

Laying prostrate, implored, galvanized

divorced from the hoarseness of defeat

standing up, stronger backs not lighter burdens

emboldened

to pull the curtains back.

For

empowerment,

not weakness that leaves one in pieces

the telltale signs

creases of stress, tells best, blesses better,

giving way to peace of mind

in time.

  1. I am digging through the crates and I found my first gem. Love this poem especially this part. “…standing up, stronger backs not lighter burdens” ❤
