Life was suffocating

Every hardship felt like a pound of dirt

Being thrown over my body

Until I couldn’t see the sun

Or feel anything other than the weight of the Earth

It wasn’t until I anchored my roots

And mustered enough strength

To push my head above the soil

That I realized I hadn’t been buried

I was planted

I wasn’t defying defeat

I was blooming

    I have lived this poem, and thus it speaks to something inside me. You have articulated so perfectly, and with such beauty, emotions that I have ridden on many occasions. Thank you 🌷
