to wake up falling

she knows

all too well

how it feels:

to wake up falling

never knowing

where you’ll land,

to start unraveling

never knowing

where you stand,

but now

With the same exact hands she used

to wipe tears from her eyes,

she stands tall

on the mountain now

and lifts them high to the sky

as she inhales and exhales

“it is well, it is well,

after all that I have lived,

I know I have

a story I will tell.”
