Stand

 

I say this to you
Be brave
stand with courage
lock eyes
don’t waver
slip
don’t let them see
the fear that seeps
though the cracks
in your
heart
made one by one
each time you
allowed yourself
to stand up and be
heard
They don’t know
the nightmares
that rip you from
sleep
sweatdrenched
teeth clenched
memories
darker than any
night they’ve seen
All they know
is what they think
they see
in the pale mirror
reflections
of their own
souls
You stand tall
Show them
how mountains
come to seem still
yet shift and
echo their own
tumultuous
pasts
