March with me #poetry #strongertogether

The vice around my ribs cranks tighter
Fear chokes me
I have shed tears
but I have so many more

I thirst for the hope of yesterday
Yet I cannot turn back time
I cannot change minds of the past

I can only move forward

Though my heart wants to squeeze
my eyes shut tight
I force them open

For I must see to choose a path
of strength and love
empowerment over complacency

I must lace up my boots
and harden my feet
for the march that is to come
