Treasure Island

Davon Montgomery

(1991- / Baltimore, Maryland)

Here I Rise


Here I rise from being a boy into a young man
Here I rise to put all the playful games to the side
Here I rise because soon I will be a man
Here I rise to learn the responsibly of being on my own

Here I rise to take life more seriously
Here I rise to take the journey of life
Here I rise to take a chance of being a father someday
Here I rise to admit to my mistakes

Here I rise to defeat the prince of darkness
Here I rise to give my life to the Lord
Here I rise to step out into this bitter world
Here I rise to be a somebody and not an anybody

Here I rise to become a old man someday
Here I rise to face the angel of death
Here I rise to look God in his eyes
Here I say I thank you for giving me life.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
