    I Rise by Venus Connelly

    Finally far from where you are
    Though permanent is the scar
    Resentment I do not jar
    A toast to the free
    Me
    This earned my degree
    Schooled in painful sensation
    Defamation
    And fabrication
    I’m ascending
    Daily contending
    Remaining unbending
    I’ve been crowned
    Now renowned
    Unbound
    You put me in the guillotine, yet I survived
    In-fact I thrived
    Once revived
    You were shockingly cruel
    Used me as a tool
    Mistakenly turned out a jewel
    The mourning dove
    Will continue to rise above
    And relearn love
