by Trina Williams-Emigh

From the bowls of wretchedness I emerged
exploding abruptly
escaping pre-destiny
from the enclave of perpetuation
seeking clarity of my existence
as an ubiquitous force
overtly overshadowed by distortion
and falsification
Yet I steadfastly rise
remaining courageous despite the struggle
erasing stereotypes
obliterating beliefs
demolishing shackles
And upon my transcendence
I embodied the wisdom of...a resurrection
