I Will Stand Again

I Will Stand Again
These past two weeks I felt as if weight was being put on my shoulders.
Something was pulling me down to the ground.
Each time I got up, I got knocked down harder,
that only made me get up faster.
I felt the pain, but knew there was no other way.
As my eyes filled with tears,
I could feel the burn, I could feel the warmth of my tears running down my face.
Touching my lips so gently, only for me to let out a cry.
I would take deep breaths, in and out to try and calm down. 
The crisp fall air, filling my lungs.
I could see my friends, and sister each look at me with nothing but sorrow in their eyes, 
as if they had taken on my pains.
But then I felt something that words cannot describe,
I was being put these obstacles for a reason.
I would figure out a way to get back up, wipe the tears, and stand on my own.
It may take some time, 
I may stumble again,
I may even shed a few more tears.
But HE has helped me back up,
So, I will stand again,
that I can feel, and that I know.

  2. When I was in a devastating accident sixteen years ago, my family's pain was worse to me than the pain I was feeling myself, which was pretty significant. Your poem made me think of how that felt.

  3. I hope the pain evident in your poem was solely for the purpose of fulfilling the prompt, and not a sign of real suffering.
