Rebirth

Rebirth

A Poem by J. F. Charleston

It's coming back
My spirit, love, joy
Man where's this been?
Don't try to hold me back.

I'm coming up 
To reclaim what's mine
To build myself back
To my former glory
Mend every crack

She kept me down
For all these years
My growth was stalled
My joy only crawled

She can't do it now
I broke these chains
She cried in horror
I left with these pains

I'm coming back
To take what's mine
Let go of the past
Fine, dine, and wine

She maybe alone now
Hunting another fool
Milking another cow
Using another tool

But I'm comin' alive
Leavin' the dark hive
Going to the light
I won this fight

I absolutely love this poem. The story is very nicely told, it seems of a love that had gone wrong/didn't work out in the end however did not result in the one individual losing all hope. The poem tells of a hope restored in that this person was able to move forward and back into returning to being who they were again and finding that inner peace and joy inside as well. Who knows what the future holds but this tells that there is light still existing and to be enjoyed. Nicely done!

Woah, man; I thought you were like, the Marlboro Man, until I read what you said about the picture.
But good for you! Don't let her win. If you can take your personhood back, you are the winner!

Wow! Crazy good work right here. I could see it being spectacular as a song too! You have to rise up and stand up for yourself. As you said, "to reclaim what's mine." I especially love the ending as well!
