The Last Redemption

This is how I will always remember you.
Better than your yesterday’s self.
How are you feeling today?, they would ask.
Tell them you are feeling better.
You write.
You write poems.
How are you feeling today?, they would ask.
Tell them you are feeling better than them.
They are the readers and you are the poetess.
Stay in the dark.
Shine bright enough to see the words.
Each letter luminous.
Light up the dark corridors.
Stay beautifully you.

– Emily Parker
