Poem: Breath

To know desire,

Look into my soul,

It lives within,

But it doesn’t fester there.

Lucky to overcome,

As many can not,

To look at the sun,

And feel free,

Breathing hasn’t always been easy.

Learned to see the world,

Through books,

To escape the vile,

Hiding in the shadows,

I went unnoticed,

Yet they still tracked me,

And even then,

I over-came,

All that chased me.

Breaking such a spirit within,

Wasn’t easy,

Like bending metal,

They tired to reach me,

Instead I stood tall,

Memories linger,

But strength,

It was there the entire time!

Much Love xo *Ria
