Between the Lines

Just between the lines, where music intertwines with words, like holding on forever can only be true, is the place that balances the silence of all we left unsaid; we left it for dead. The music still plays on without the words, but the meaning

is lost in the quiet space, between the lines that once held us so gentle, like a promise waiting to break one of us forever…. and so it did. #stephaniebennetthenry #ragingrhetoric

Letting Go

I am horrible at letting go, until I do… and then I let go hard enough to crumble everything around me, including myself.

Letting Go

Poetry of Stephanie Bennett Henry

Safe Route

I don’t want anyone who chooses the safe route, the shortcuts, the cop outs. I want the one who knows what my spine is made of, but will still step in to fight for me before I have a chance to say a word. I don’t want the person who lays low and let’s everything slide. Bring me the one who isn’t afraid to douse the fire, instead of the one who stands there to watch me burn.

Safe Route

To Be Me Again

I’ll open that door if it means I can breathe again. I’ll open that door if it means I can live again. I will kick that door down if it means there’s even a small chance I can be me again. #stephaniebennetthenry #ragingrhetoric

Eye of Your Own Storm

Sometimes the healing you need is found in the eye of your own storm and the only way to reach it is by first traveling through the depths of hell and letting each flame burn off the parts of you that no longer offer peace. #stephaniebennetthenry #ragingrhetoric
