RISE ABOVE

RISE ABOVE

A Poem by Cassie Fraga
"

I designed this rhyme to remind...

"
**There comes a time when your tears become your motivation
Your exhaustion becomes your energy
Your weakness becomes your strength
And your confusion becomes your view**

Knocking my fist into the chest of iniquity
I seize the darkened depth of its sound
Pierce my nails into a conquering clutch
Letting the fevered ooze seep into the ground
I rise above with experience turn lesson and lessons learned
Wearing mistakes forgiven as my crown
Shinning complications with a ray of faith
Dropping negativity pound for pound

I feel the pale mocking drip and puddle into my hands
Reflecting versus to freeze my soul
Long lost words with no face they cruelly whisper
Bidding my cries to tear through my skin as they roll
I rise above with tossing such echoes into an acid of rejection
Remembering to treat my dreams and love like gold
I tear myself down to rebuild for a new
A stronger me to fit the mold

Rise above-

Won't say anything but "priceless"...Attitude is everything and strengthens to rise above that which can be overwhelming. Great thoughts and inspiration to be...
"Remembering to treat my dreams and love like gold
I tear myself down to rebuild for a new
A stronger me to fit the mold"

Strong intro **There comes a time when your tears become your motivation Your exhaustion becomes your energy Your weakness becomes your strength And your confusion becomes your view**

The tears of "I want to let go", to "I can't let go" a rough emotion with gentleness of a females touch

""I rise above with experience turn lesson and lessons learned Wearing mistakes forgiven as my crown""

As only life can it serves us lessons, its our conscious to choose whether or not to bury them

I'm feeling this piece strongly written and your style of writing is appealing good work..

Very cool, I particularly enjoyed the first stanza ... haven't you poested it on facebook once? When I read it I had a deja-vu ! The whole poem is full of pathos, usually increased by the terrific superbly written descriptions, great job =D
A question: ... How do you put a video in the author's note? I've been trying for ages !! xD
