Poetry of Stephanie Bennett Henry, Uncategorized

Say Yes 

I hope one day

you say “yes”

to everything that

ever scared you.

I hope you look back

and laugh in the face

of all those monsters

that put fear in your hands

and hesitation on your tongue.

I hope you look at yourself

and see your own heart

staring back at you,

and I hope you believe

the way it pounds.

-Stephanie Bennett-Henry
