Still Standing

Darkness will not cover me

Nor will I stumble down rabbitholes

that lead only to despair.

I still have eyes to see horror

And ears to hear lamentations;

A brain to move aside the curtain where the wizard stands, naked and unmasked.

I will count the gifts at my door, the good hearts I hear beating, the bits of bright hope like embers in a fire.
