Topic: toughstuff

Reminiscent gun blast
of bleak days from the past
Triggers the Alphabet Gang.
Colliding with full force
Staggering back, due course

Abruptly flipped up, then down,
Screaming, but making no sound
Hanging on, letting go.
Such extremes. They start to show.
Cause and effect is a hound-

Nipping repeatedly.
Giving chase to the taste
of blood spilling ... fulfilling
Desire for surrender
to knees which grow weary.

Each tooth that sinks into flesh
Smoking gun, bullet wound fresh-
There is diminished hope
and protruding wounds to cope

And yet I will rise again.

Deep and dark, but also very inspirational at the end.
Excellent write that ends in positivity. The title was the clue. Welcome home. We missed you.

Haunted you certainly are, Scorpers, and write you certainly can.
Rise again you will, and a wonder if will be.
Jus/'/ drivin/'/ some beef down these parts, thought ah/'/d ride inta town, and say howdy.
Yer ol/'/ buddy, Texas Red.

It takes courage to be brave and your poem has many layers. Theres more here than meets the casual observer.
We cannot get through life unscathed; it snaps at us impatiently. But as you point for us the persistent pursuit,
your song remains stronger than the approaching battle. You are stronger than your words, and the gift of your poem is hope.
When we stop getting up, its all over.

Your effortless skill upsets me, not sassiness haha.
I can sit for ages looking at a page wondering what clever arrangement of words to put down, yours are pure mastery of the craft
Another great write, you have risen again and will always do so.

The mind tricks the body
the body thinks the mind is crazy
yes yes yes
we may be battle worn torn
but we aint never giving up
excellent flow....

Maya had many ups and downs in her own life. "Still I Rise" is a great reflection of her life and attitude. Some common ground here? You/'/ve done her an honor by writing this wonderful piece. Missed you lots!

Come and stand with me upside-down pon hands
Haiku japanese if you please
Upon knees as we eat the breeze
There/'/s a solitary candle
At the centre of it all
I rise with my read heir
Eating men like air
