Arise!



A Poem centered and inspired by the words Surge et egredere
Scriptural Note: John 14:31 (NIV) ...“Come now; let us leave.

Broken and scarred
Alone it seems, if only for a moment
Rest has entered but a name has been called
Arise.


Worried and wearied
Hurt and confused
Infused with purpose
You hear a last breath
Yet I pause to
Arise.

Gathering up what little strength
Easing out the old fate
I heard a voice
I know my name
Arise.

I am not dead.
I am not dying
I am
Becoming…
I will
Arise.

Not to new
But true life waits
Afraid before
I laid me down
And then I heard the sound - the voice say
Arise.

Get up!
Get thee up!
Wake yourself!
Arouse the troops!
Trouble is near
I fear having soon to surrender
But my fiber - Dares you
Arise.

I am not broken
I am not scarred
I am not gone beyond despair,
Beautifully marred
I know the sound
What I must do…
