Life will

Break you

If you let

It

She said,

Eyes locking

Me

But you

Have a choice

Determination

And grit

Are gifts given

When you

Feel like

You’ll break

But how

You use

Them

Now that

Can be

Your gift.

I looked at

Her

You’ve been

Dealt an

Unfair hand

How can

You be

As strong

As you are.

I remind

Myself everyday

Every hour

If I need to

None of us

Go through

Life unscathed

We’re also

Chasing shadows

In one way

Or another

I decide though

Whether I lie

Down defeated

Or fight

Another

Battle.

I smiled

Strong words

Ringing in my

Ears

Life will

Break you

If you let

It.

I wasn’t about

To let it

Break me.
