Roots - S.A. Quinox (Poetry)

This poem by S.A. Quinox is all about rising from pain and suffering even stronger. We are no longer victims. We are survivors.

You may have plucked her petals,

and you may have cursed the soil

that she used to flourish in,

but you cannot stain her roots.

Because darling, she was meant to root

deeper into the earth’s crust

than any grave you tried to dig for her.
