Write As Rea

The happy intersection between what I want to write and what people want to read.

Knocked down so many times

Was it seven or more?

Life doesn’t do the counting for you.

Rolling around wondering if it’s worth it to

Get Up!

Persistently stubborn, a heart is strongly beating

In an aching chest.

One eye open and One eye closed

from coldly bitter blows.

Waiting to be bested and ignored

Sitting in painful patience as my doubt tells me eight times is too many.

Stay down!

But I refuse. I won’t. I can’t.

Quitting isn’t in me.

Rising to the challenge singing in the marrow of my bones I stand

Give up?

Never.
