I Rise

Rising out the darkness

Seeing the light as I lift my head up high

Reaching beyond happiness and joy

Towards victory

Like the birds soaring into the sky, I rise


With your hatred and your clouding thoughts of pure darkness,

I was able to rise like the sun

I was able to face my obstacles

Facing reality

Facing the world

Proud to say I made it

Leaving the past behind me

Like the leaves flowing into the air, I rise


Beginning to realize the truth

I begin to face what is known as the real world

Begging to experience a life of my own

Like the words that are being spoken,

I rise
