arise

yearning for a change
yet I find myself standing
beneath the night
in the same place
breathing the same air
familiar, code for safe
but unfulfilled
do I know risk? sacrifice?
do I know failure?
do I have the strength to try
again, to arise?
like the sun, daily breaking
the darkness to complete
a cycle of life, do I have
what it takes to arise?
