Kneeling I Rise….

Posted on October 31, 2012


in awe…
leaving the wreckage
embracing the life.

from the desert
to the plush mountainside
the beauty has been discovered.

the delivery made
Hope has risen on high
Tragically beautiful
New Life rises fresh and bold in light

in the jungle I venture
in pouring rain I bend
through foliage refuge light pierces
I am reminded I am not alone
and darkness will not overthrow.

So I rise
joyous heart
steadfast step
walk boldly
swing over ditches of death

never forgetting
Loving boldly
never changing
except to deeper vulnerable authenticity

today is a blessing
Today I rise!
