Rooted

By Cass C

I am rooted.

A tree standing tall, resilient in the harsh, blowing winds.

Strong I stand.

I feel the storm arrive.

The clouds surround the sun, suffocating its light, allowing for dark days.

There are days when the ghosts whisper in my ears, making me question all that I know, causing self doubt.

There are days when the clouds cry, making the ground muddy from their tears.

I walk, and feel stuck. Unable to move because my feet are slowly sinking in the mud puddle, and I feel like crying with the clouds.

But I’m too strong for that.

The winds blow strong, and I feel like anything could knock me over. I’m not the best with balance,

but I’m getting there.

My feet are still learning how to support the body they were blessed to be a part of, although they don’t always see it as a blessing.

The sun hides away, suffocated by the clouds surrounding it.

I too feel suffocated at times, but it feels safe to hide away sometimes. To block out everything around me and just, be.

But rather than hide away, I need to force myself to grow and bloom.

I need to stand strong and face the ghosts, the demons, that try to attack me.

The storm blows strong, but I am stronger.

I am rooted.

A tree standing tall, resilient in the harsh, blowing winds.

Strong I stand.
