To write one hundred hopeful words every day for one hundred days


Website:


Rise

My lungs are strong

I have these words

I can shout them to the sky

I’m not afraid, I won’t give up

Not even going to cry.

My heart is strong and I refuse

To have it compromised

My arms are strong

I can slice the black worms

They bruise and then divide

But one day I’ll stop feeding them

One day, I’ll get wise

Go on, Take me to the deepest darkest place,

dig down deep, bury me alive

I have a love untouchable.

I won’t die. I will rise.
