Not a Victim

I survived assault in my senior year
Survived
From which I became pregnant
Survived
And miscarried
Survived
And survived
I have my scars
Survived
And have shed my tears
Survived
And like MaryHayden
Survived
Would not take back the experience

It allowed me able to comfort others in their time of need.
It helped me to understand my calling and true vocation (of nurse-midwifery)
And forged me as through a fire. Made me a strong person.

I am a survivor.
