Effloresence: Blooming from the Ashes

By Wenona Gardner

Wabun Anung (Morning Star)

Crash!

Burn!

Ignite!

Burst!

Often times my life

crumbles as such

each time I have a

mental breakdown.

Sometimes I wonder

how far my mind can

really go in the end.

I wonder how long it will last?

My mind seems to have

great resilience which is

funny because people falsely

assume that mental illness

means weakness not strength.

I know I have limits.

I have decided to reject

Stigma in my life.

I reject it through and through.

Instead my mind is a Phoenix!

Efflorescence!!

Blooming

from the Ashes!

Great Creator gives me

Beauty for my Phoenix Ashes!
