Rise


It hurt you. Again

When you thought it would end

It wouldn't get any more worse

It couldn't harm you no more

But. It did

They have stayed with you

They will stay with you

These scars

That hurt you

And broke you

But these are part of you

They've made you

And only stronger

So wear them

Fiercely and with grace


You are who you are. Proudly.

You're not broken

You and everything about you is valid

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise

Overpower what suppresses you

And rise.


- Sarah Ali
