Poem: Facing the Giant

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Rise" by Katy Perry

"Facing the Giant"

She’s always been a starry eyed girl
chasing her dreams,
holding on tight with both hands
when the road gets bumpy,
determined to succeed.

Refusing to let the light go dim
when dreams slip away
putting droplets of water in her eyes,
she starts her journey over.

She breathes life back into each one of her desires,
crawling back up on her own two feet,
facing the giant
like David did with Goliath.

"The Climb" by Miley Cyrus
