Desert Flower – MHAM Blog Challenge: Day 4

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.,

Deriding,

Taunting,

Frightening me.

But like a desert flower,

I am resilient,

Beautiful,

Strong.

I will not wilt;

But will,

Flourish,

Despite drought,

And strong winds.

I will,

I will,

I will.

For I am a desert flower,

Resilient,

Beautiful,

Strong.

– Skylar T. Loch, Chronic Migraineur
