I Will Rise

One of my friends shared this on Facebook and it touched me so deeply that I wanted to share it here. All credit goes to the author. I did not write this. But it is so beautiful and so true. I hope that as you read it, you will find comfort and peace too.


An inspirational quote by S. L. Heaton


I was lying on my back

in the middle of a place

called rock bottom,

and through the tears I saw it,

one small ray of light,

and beyond the screams of why

I heard it,

a faint whisper of hope.

I will forever be searching

for a reason to believe,

because you see,

falling down has always been my forte,

but staying down will never be my style.


I Will Rise
