upward… by Toni L.A. Cross

lift your eyes

lift up your soul

take a deep breath

let it make you whole

shake off those chains

this melancholy role

don’t sink to the bottom
repossess the life despair stole

fling back hesitation and sing
echo hope from life’s hilly knoll

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
