    I feel as if
    I have been
    taken down
    by the hands
    of those who
    know no bounds.

    From deep misery,
    I am left pleading
    down on my knees.

    I have taken
    a hard life
    beating, but
    I must get back
    up on my feet.

    I am two
    steps ahead,
    but I feel
    the warm breath
    of something evil
    breathing down
    my sweaty neck.

    I can hear its
    beck and call,
    but I'm holding on
    and won't turn around.

    If I do,
    I feel
    I will
    lose
    this race.

    I pray for
    a little help
    from up above
    and soon feel
    a quickening
    of my pace.

    As I stand alone
    between here
    and there,
    I begin to believe
    I will rise above.

    Yes,
    maybe,
    this time,
    I will.

    Sierra, this was so descriptive, and emotional...and yes you must continue to look ahead or rather above...looking back always causes us to loose stride.

    On the same page with this flow...inspiring.

    sense the flow of love
    from above.

    you're not alone

    in the heart of the evils
    that surround you
    in the midst of the powers
    threatening to overtake you

    you are not alone

    when the hot breath of
    angry fingers
    reach out for you

    breathe deeply
    speak softly
    smile inwardly
    and know that

    you're not alone.:)

    LET THE RIVER FLOW...and RISE, my friend. RISE.
