I rise from the valley of death
The valley you pushed me into
The valley I reject…
Its deluge couldn’t drown me.
I don’t want to mourn for
The blessings that I have lost
I refuse to crumble under them
Within me, I can hear a loud protest.
Your memories don’t make me smile
They offer no solace now
They rest on a rocky ledge
Floundering in watery grave.
Divesting that soaking attire
I am seeking new vistas
My eye lashes are glowing
Approbations no longer allure me.
I seek the company of those
Who can guide me, escort me
Toward the path of enlightenment,
Forgiveness and peace.
