Shattered dreams that I held dear,
crumble beneath me as I shed a solitary tear.
The kind that stings and hurts deep inside,
but still I manage to maintain my pride.
A broken childhood threatens to keep me at bay,
from ever tasting a better day.
Still my evergrowing might I know will haul me through,
all of those times when I'm no longer sure what to do.
Torn in parts I never deemed could be repaired,
but they've healed as no longer in their web am I snared.
Standing my ground even when times are hard,
aware of the fact that I need to put up this guard.
Shielding myself from the way they can be,
as finally I accept the most important person is me.
I cannot change my past but my future I can mould,
as my almighty strength begins to unfold.
Betrayed by so many but faith I have maintained,
as I see with time more trust I have gained.
When I could so easily have lost my belief,
wallowed in my pain and hid behind my grief.
Yet I am still as wonderful as I used to be,
none of them have succeeded in breaking me.
I won't let myself of love be anymore deprived,
as I look back at my pain and say proudly I SURVIVED!!!
