It’s Poetry Wednesday again! Below is a poem inspired by those who have suffered through abuse and the darkness the world has to offer and come out into the light on the other side. It is also for those who can’t yet see through the shadows. Every step counts!


The flower knows both light and dark.

The tree holds supple leaves and ridged bark.

Both, drink of pouring rain and shining sun.

Through weathered storm and Phoenix fire, she has won.

-Michael Snow
