Rise - Poem by Madhavi Grace

You have to become
the candle
to bring light
why wait for the sunrise

You have to
dig your path
and watch the flowers
grow wayside

You have to free
your clipped wings
and set yourself
to fly...

    This is excellent. Short, succinct, and fearlessly clear. That opening stanza stands out powerfully. Wonderful crafting. (Report) Reply
