Poetry Friday: Wise Eyes by Hannah Teter

This week's poem comes from gold medalist Hannah Teter, who is currently touring the US with author Justina Chen Headley as part of the Girl Overboard Book Tour.

inner strength
the core of believeing
reaching out and receiving
coming in, going out
a loud whisper
  a silent shout
a beating breath
  a breathing heart
a long stare from wise eyes,
penetrating deep inside

-- Wise Eyes by Hannah Teter

Many thanks to Hannah and Justina for giving me special permission to reprint the poem and share the video.
