Empowerment Project--Concrete Giants

This artwork and accompanying poem are by *Willow.



Hovering tall above me
All around me
Concrete giants
Providing shadows for the scum
I can still feel the sun
As it rises above the rooftops
Healing my broken soul
And making it whole
Chasing away the monsters
And dangers
Providing safety with it's light
And destroying the night
And the hearts that don't beat
The ones that don't sleep
The damaged, the dying
Their tears are now drying  



I'm drying my own tears, now. Thanks so much Willow for sharing her inspiring and beautiful work!
