I rise, Poetry by Amber Agha

Genre: Relationship

There are men who will steal your light
They trick you and break you
They take you and bring you to your knees
where they want you
There are men who get you to hate all you are
There are men who get you to lose yourself so much
That death seems the only way to re gain self

I dont hate these men
Thats the plan of the darkness
I dont want revenge and dont say all men are like this
I wont close my heart and shut down
I shall rise again
I shall fly again
I shall soar high
I shall reclaim all I am
I shall sing loud and bright
And celebrate the huge heart in me
That saw the signs
Knew this would hurt
but still jumped in
Not because Im weak or stupid
Not because I didnt have a choice
I had plenty of options
But because I believed in you
In your soul to rise above the temptation to play the templates of the past
Because my heart knew I could withstand this and would come out more alive
That to die again and again
Makes me immortal
Your crash and burn
Made me immortal
I rise and rise and nothing shall ever bring me down again
Where will you be when I rise this high?
You missed out on seeing me this fly
You missed out on the magic to come
And I dont pity you I dont hate you
I feel for your heart too scared to love a woman like me
But I will still love you from up here
I still love you
I have that much in me I can die and be broken come alive and still love you
Do you see what you had and let go of?
Shame for you
