Still I Rise

 

Loud is the silence 
as I can hear my heart beat 
Fear and sorrow are all I feel 
Alone, though surrounded by many 
Anger and his brother, hatred, 
are all they show 
I blame them not as I 
incited my own fiasco 
Giving wings to scoffers to soar 


Uncertain of what today sees in me 
Wondering what tomorrow thinks of me 
I take solace in my paper and pen 
Life still remains, so does hope 
Drowning in a pool of regret 
I realise I am my only lifeguard 


I sat, reminiscing on my awful past 
Wishing I had a better present 
Hopeful still, for the future 
has many days in it 
Awesome days are all I see ahead

 


Rocky has been the path 
Yes, I have fallen but still I rise 
I fell but my legs remain unbroken 
I wiped sorrow’s dust off my 
behind as I rose from failure’s ground 
And took the first step to my 
successful tomorrow
