Abet Speaks x New Tone Present: RISEN

When I wrote this piece, I was…

Broken. The word has such a negative connotation that sometimes, it makes you cringe. (Broken bones. Broken relationship. Broken family.) When I sat down to write “Risen,” I felt the need to change that. Because although I was torn at the time–completely distraught and confused–I knew there were still pieces of me that were strong and resilient. I knew that hitting a low point was just the beginning of a climb. “The” climb. My climb towards something better.

I wrote this piece for Bulls fans and D. Rose “bull-ievers” all over the world. More importantly though, I wrote this for those who might feel the same way I once did. You might be broken but you’re definitely not defeated. You’re definitely not alone.
