A Vision of Standing Tall

Written by: Asheka Collins

Standing Tall
Standing proud and strong
That will be me.

As I look up from where I lie
Curled up in a ball
Broken and defeated.

I see it clearly
The vision is strong
I will be tall and strong

As I lie,
I throb from head to toe
One big ball of pain

With my vision strong and clear
I dry my eyes
I sit up and silently pray.

I will be strong and tall
I will laugh again.
I will be me again.
I will be standing tall.
Standing strong.
