I Am, I Am Not

I am not strong enough to make every step of the way without falling from time to time.

But I am strong enough to get back up again.

I am not courageous enough to face the darkness ahead of me.

But I am courageous enough to close my eyes, sing softly to myself, and push on through, even when my heart is racing and my mind full of terror.

I am not happy with the way my life is.

But I am going to keep living it, and fight for the happiness that belongs to me.

I am not going to stop until my legs are broken and I cannot draw a single breath.

But I am going to find places to rest along the way.

I am not sure what the future holds.

But I am going to find out.
