I Rise, Oh I Rise! - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

Though floors of insanity
Shake so vigorously
The bed of sands below
Seek to swallow me whole
I rise, oh I rise!

These torrents have long risen
With fierce and force driven
Down the gushing streams
Towards the hungry seas
Yet they shall have no hold

I rise oh I rise!
More than my countless falls
Up to the steepest slopes
Unto the deepest ravines
I shall not remain fallen

Along these lonely paths I walk
Though the world weighs me down
The heart fails to hold on to hope
My feet do carry me through
Out of this maze let me rise

    i'm that kind of a person that doesn't like people.
    so i might not like you in person, but your art, i am fond of.
    keep writing.
