She Lives – Together We Rise Poetry Contest Entry

Author: T. McEachern

Though my innocence was taken not everything was lost
To die in Christ is to live again
Bearing my cross daily I must give
Sometimes we give and sometimes itʼs taken but never the less we lived
We survived we pushed through we preserved
Your hope was lost but your faith was strengthened
They said she lose it all in the storm
But the storm mixed up ideas
Birthed your creativity and inspirations
Now youʼre unstoppable in the path of destination
You walk along the runway twisting and twirling looking out on those who admire
Trying to reduce your carbon footprint and your desires
You pull them up as you walk along youʼre nothing without them so why not let them tag along
