Promise by Paul Zietsman

Poem

An anvil that chimes when
punished, my heart has
become

Though hammered without
pause, it now sings a melody
of love

Love for the pain that split
opened the hardened shell
which enclosed a heart,
fortified by fear

An enlivened blood, red
and breathing, now
courses through the
highway of my veins,

it carries a devotion to life…
and love

This fresh chance afforded
by truth
beckons a future filled with
meaning

From the ashes of lies,
burned
in the fire of karma, springs to

life a vision
of peace and worth, a

Phoenix which rises above
all affliction, to soar
in skies saturated
with possibility

blooming like the flower
of life itself,

as it bleeds with
promise
