On My Knees

Image by Stefan Keller from Pixabay

I have been knocked down
again & again… so have you.
Tried to fight, tried to find
a clear path only to be
blocked & buried.
What they don’t know
is if I stayed down
I would have died
decades ago…
I am guessing
you would have too.
If you’ve got my
back, I have your
neck, together.
When I am on my knees
& my head is bowed,
don’t count me out.
I am trying to decide
if I am coming back
as fire or ice, but
trust me,
I am coming back.
May the odds be ever
in our doubters &
troublemakers favor.
