The Raven

by Mimi   Oct 10, 2020


I tried to rise
From the ashes
Like a phoenix
But I couldn't quite manage
To pick myself up
So instead
I let those ashes
Become a part of me
Darkening my wings
And I became
A raven
Not quite beautiful
Like a peacock
Not quite majestic
Like an eagle
But I was powerful
And even though
I didn't quite get
Rid of the pain
I wore it proudly
For all to see
My darkened wings
A reminder
That I'm no longer
Afraid
To walk through Hell
Because I know
I will overcome
