“I Rise” – Poetry


I rise to go further than ever before

To feel wind in my hair, shake the dust from my feet

I rise to learn wisdom from stories of old

Cultivate strength with a body made free


I rise to hear songs of the old ones who know

To study the past and divine what’s to come

I rise to lift myself from the familiar, secure

And learn faith in the unseen and stars above


I rise to the war waged within my mind

A battle most perilous, the prize being my soul

I rise to the challenge each moment, each hour

And preserve the beauty only I hold
