rise

by E Mani Lee


wide awake i cannot see
the voice said,
you are not brave are you
no answer in the dark
the night stares in
you are not brave are you
a stirring. a breath. delicate fingers reach out
and i rise
the words break the clouds like sun
the light is blinding
wide awake i cannot see
but i am
i am fearless
