After watching a movie was moved to put pen to paper.

Rise & Survive

you may beat me down
but each time i will get up
dust myself off and keep on moving
I may limp
I may bleed from cuts and scrapes
but still will I rise
you will continue to try and beat me down
but know this
one day
I will embrace my inner strength
and rise and never come back
that day
will be your last
I survived


I survived what you threw my way
You thought I would go down in flames
But I did not
I rose from the ashes
I overcame the obstacles
I was triumphant in every course
Every course brought me to the valley
The valley of peace
Which taught me all of this will only endure for a moment but joy...joy will come
And I will have a story to tell of how I survived
To be an inspiration to others...to let them know they are not alone


Inspirational Thought, Victory
