Stand Tall: An Anaphora Poem

By Stephanie W.

I will stand tall because…

   I am not a quitter

   I have a strong will

   and a soft heart.

 

I will stand tall because…

   I have what it takes

   to be the best mother,

   daughter, and wife

   that I can be.

 

I will stand tall because…

   nothing will get in

   my way and nobody

   can judge me for

   only what they can see.

 

I will stand tall because…

   I am who I am and

   I’ll always be me from

   the end to the start.

 

I will always stand tall because

   I’m made not to fall.
