Sustenance by Gary Bolstridge

Review this piece

I had crossed the wilderness
Scaled mountains
Forged streams
Been battered by inclement weather
Fallen and picked myself up repeatedly

But these were only preparations
When I looked within
My heart and soul — the very being of me —

I was sustained in the belief of my righteousness
The blood in my veins
And my bones told me it was so
