    Day 14: Stand Tall #28DayChallenge

    Seven years stood tall Though short to be reckoned with In the final scheme of things Yet the impact of those years Reverberated into eternity Gentle voices called out Echoing loudly in the darkness Their message was clear: “Bring home your honor Even if you lose everything else” So you stood like a warrior Fought […]
