With the Poets
Maya said and still I rise,
So I stand up as straight as I can.
Like that raven Poe quoted I’ll shout nevermore.
Into that gentle night,
I will not ever go easy,
For when the words fail me,
And I wonder if I was ever strong enough,
There will always be poems to light my way…
To brighten up my broken path
And as I step down onto the path less
traveled I know that I carry their words
Great poem! I love the nods to Poe and Dylan Thomas 🙂
