The Rise

Fighting, hoping, waiting for change
A moment in time, unyielding, unrelenting forever ingrained
The kiss of paper to pen,
black to white, liquid to solid
Needing, wanting, searching

Grasping for strength, needing a mirror, a mentor a preacher
Truth, honesty, reality
Enough concerns, worries, doubts
Enough placating, sweet names that kindly emphasize an easy, personal sound

Fears, dreams, hopes,
In need of a certain true touch, free from guilt or desire
Floating, guiding, connecting
Uplifting, encouraging, reflecting
Completion, fulfilled by the swift sword’s merciless victor
