Rise: A Poem

I will rise over the wall

I will rise every after fall

I will rise and stand tall

I will rise above them all

Anxiety and depression once made its way to my mind

And it took all the passion and the motivation I built

Suicidal ideation would take over my mind,

Thinking ways to end my life – medicines, ropes and knives.

Slowly, I am learning how to love myself

I thought, how can I rise from the downfall

If I didn’t make a choice to still continue my life

Decided, falling multiple times does not define me.

After falling once, twice and maybe even thrice

I will never accept defeat over little things

I will always be brave and the strongest I have ever been

Again and again, until I succeed.
