I am Strong

Here I am
Just as myself
Never stepping down
Always in leadership
And I refuse to wear a frown

I’ve fluttered up from the bottom
Released my pessimistic views
Like a dove with broken wings
They have healed,
And away I flew 

I can’t be broken down
You will see me as a whole
The pieces held together
By my family pure as gold

I work to make my living
Sometimes it is so tough
But I wouldn’t change a second
What is life without love?

In the place that I live 
Not the nicest
Far from best
But we are working our way up
My family’s stronger than the rest

Don’t take me as a bragger
But my confidence is firm
If I can make it through a tragedy
Then surely,
I can make it through a storm
-Miranda Lambert-

    This is me right here. Breaking free into your sky that nobody else can see but you...and those who understand & value you. Well done!
