I Will Stand Tall 

Amanda Kiser  


As I stand alone
walls on all sides
On the hardness and trials
I will stand tall
as tall as I might,
for all of my
humble little life.
Til the world tramples me,
and I am no more,
I will stand tall
as tall as I might.
Always reaching for the sun.
Even though all around
is brokenness and pain
I'll lend my brief beauty
and stand tall
as tall as I might.

Amanda wrote this poem about a lone dandelion surviving on the bank of the St. Lawrence River, and later realized it was more about her. Copyright 2004, reprinted with Amanda's kind permission.
