What is strength if not me?
For I am strong
Stronger than I think
Stronger than I feel
Stronger than I would ever need to be
Do you doubt that?
Try and hurt me
Throw a punch
Physical or emotional
And we shall see
How fast I heal
While you wallow in the depths of misery
For having lost to me
and worst still
For having lost me
Swam through a pool of fire
And emerged unscathed.
Learned to run without training wheels,
Realised I could fly, growing wings.
Tried to keep my tears under wraps,
Found my smile bedazzling the world.
Never heard a word of encouragement,
Yet my voice resonated with profundity.
Miseries and triumphs –
The sum total of my achievements
May yet be far from even numbers.
But the life that I am living
Will not douse like dying embers.
