I Will Rise


right now

at this very moment

the wolf inside

is trying to free herself

of me

to sink her teeth into flesh

but as she bares them, growling

she fades away to nothing

the dragon that lives in my chest

no longer has fire

she rejects me

far too tired

of being slayed

and the mare that lives in my core

is cowering

afraid of the race, tired of running

desperately wanting to be seen

for more than what she can give

but the phoenix

oh! the phoenix

has found me in the darkness

she has spread her wings and caught my fall

she reminds me of the legend—

all endings have beginnings

and she whispers

we will rise

just you wait
