she rose despite the thorns

…fall into a poem, that may even inspire you…

She felt beaten
Like ropes on sunburnt skin
Her tears swollen against her

She laid there
No words spoken
Her breath just a beat

She couldn’t lift her arm
Raise a word from her mouth
Smell the fire around her

Her life a fury
Her heart a maze
Her head ready to fight

She wasn’t one to lay down
She wouldn’t surrender
That person wasn’t worth the fury

The battle may have been lost
The war was just beginning
Within her

Her breathe rose a beat
Her heart sped up
Her eyes no longer shut

She knew it was up to her
She saw herself rising
She rose despite the thorns
