PHOENIX

While it is light
she stockpiles hope
heaping up prayers
scribbling notes
and affirmations—
an arsenal to serve
when the crushing darkness
comes crashing in
sucking the oxygen
out of her life
fingertips raw and bleeding
from trying
to hold on…

Always
always
she survives

bruised and wearyshe opens crusted puffy eyesto pristinerisingburgeoning light

and she dances:
radiant
&
VICTORIOUS.
