I wrote the poem that follows on August 21, 2013. When I saw today’s prompt on migraine.com – Maya Angelou recites her poem “Still I Rise” – I immediately thought of it and decided to share it today.
You woke me at 5 a.m.,
But like a desert flower,
I am resilient,
I will not wilt;
And strong winds.
For I am a desert flower,
– Skylar T. Loch, Chronic Migraineur
