Nothing inside of me
wanted to raise the white flag

Nothing within me
believed giving up was an option

Everything inside of me
saw a light within a sun
that had not risen in years

Everything within me
felt the spark to ignite
a thousand candles
that were thought to be lifeless

Sense of certainty
consumes my heart

Sense of belonging
floats in the sea of my soul

For now I will breathe
because nothing concrete
can thrive through constant pressure

Hope is what I have
for a story still unwritten
inside of me
to share
with you
