Rise From the Earth

As many in the southeast, I am waiting for Isaac.  I pray that everyone will stay out of harm's way through this storm.  On the other hand, it leaves me with time to think and finish poems that I have started. Thi is one of those poems.

Rise from the Earth 

I rise from the earth
Like the redwood
And feel the breeze on my face.
After so much downfall,
I’m finally feeling the triumph
Of a thousand kings.
The rays of the sun
Shine on my face
And grant me all of the hope
That I’ve waited for a lifetime.
