REBLOG: Please don’t miss Beckie’s beautiful poem! ❤
“Worth” (Poem) return to me, my love and beloved without you here I belong to the obscurity of shadows, deep, dark and, weighted down. I’m a prisoner held captive, chained and bound, sinking within the depths of the roaring river rapids. I fight not to drown but to stay afloat, with hopes of reaching the shores […]

and heavy with rain
rumbles a threat
in my marrow
sets the sky
to the heavens

REBLOG: Don’t miss Stephanie’s Brilliant piece!
Woman, made of spine, rooted deep where flowers grow, despite secrets long buried in the soil where ancestors died, holding their last breath like one last chance. Woman, made of strength where one tree started alone, branched out with hands reaching, holding, bending, to welcome the others to evolve and rupture into a forest that […]

via Wings — Brave & Reckless
Lush and cool,
my bed this morn.
The springing forth of new life
I am comforted
in it’s embrace.
The coming night
holds no fear.
For I am surrounded

The energy it takes
to pull my feet from this earth
I lift my head
seeing the sunlight
breaking through the darkness ahead.
Just a sliver.
determined to reach
the cloudless space.
A deep breath.
Fragments are found
somewhere deep inside.
A small victory.
I feel warmth
coming from the light.
One last step...
