Poem: Rise

I bruise
I weary
I stumble
I fall
Darkness surrounds me
Cold loneliness engulfs me
I wallow in the dark
Flailing
Blinded by my despair
I scream
I shout
I whisper
I pray
I breathe
Time and space spin round
I rise
A light shines
It guides me on
Joy and love embrace me
Peace fills me
Grace saves me
For every time I fall
I know in my soul
I will rise again

In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
