I feel strong
Often misunderstood 
But unshaken nonetheless 

I feel empowered

Courageous even

Although I admit I am weak

I am fragile

I try my best to be meek

Shortcomings, yes

The urge to quit? No.

Torn apart

Yet intricately sewn back together

Shattered, yet made new

This world, though it try

It will not destroy

It will not conquer

It will not subdue

I will fight
I have the will to survive


She’s a dreamer’s dream

Colliding into one

She turns her face to the sun

She throws her cares to the wind

As it caresses her hair

And stimulates her mind

She’s a free spirit you know

She’s one of a kind
