Arisen, Arighted

The heart within me
Beating with the light of love,
Though left all alone,
To face the fear, carry through,
Be much more than I can do.
Holed up, held at bay
Unable to face another day;
Yet, I hide the pain,
Lift myself from covers warm
Heed the day, for I was born
Not to quail in storm
To engage my plight over
Adversity prevail
In terror’s coffin, place nails
Somehow grasp strength, overcome.
In a voice drawn from
Heroes of the distant past
Firmly standing now,
I become a dignified need,
To in this moment, succeed.
Still, the sword maintains
Its vigil over my life
At any time, can
Fall, but I shall have faith, grace
Freely given, shall keep me safe.
The heart within me
Beating with the light of love,
Though left all alone,
To face the fear, carry through,
Be much more than I can do.

Prompt: Personify your feelings in something creative. If you wish, share your product with the world.

I am thankful:
In the darkness of emotion, love breaks through.
Winter is, then Spring.
Freedom still has a hold.
Somehow, I persevere.
Delight forsakes day, parties into the night.
