Her gas light went on

In the middle of the road

To Astounding Wonders.

It was an old car

And the gauge




It appeared full.

Yet the light shone

And the car died

With an ugly groan.

She got out

And started walking

To find the means to refuel.

She had  

No phone or jacket.

She wore heels.

She had been driving

All alone.  

She heard the rumble

Of thunder

And it looked like

The sky

Was about to

Open up.

Yet still she went.

Still she’d rise.

Still she’d rise.
