I am thankful.
For my troubled childhood;
it has made me a stronger adult.
To know what death feels like,
because it taught me how to live.
For every cut, bruise, and scar,
there is a reminder of lessons learned.
For every tear drop on my pillow,
there came the victory of a smile.
For every negative person who has passed through my life,
you showed me how to walk away.
For even the most torturous heartbreak,
I was given a chance to exude unconditional love.
Every yell, scream, and shout I’ve heard,
has taught me how to practice patience.
To be thankful for unlikely experiences is a victory in itself.
Every ounce of pain has entered me into life’s game of challenges.
And I am grateful.
For every bit. Every crash. Every bang. Every shake up.
Because through the fog of negativity,
A strong woman breaks through.
Just because the journey can be blind to the eye
Doesn’t mean it cannot be seen with the soul.
I always know it will be okay,
and for that, I am thankful.
