A Champion

I have survived four years of abuse,
being mistreated,neglected,and ignored
being scared,worried,stress of  all misuse.
I freed myself of all hurt and pain,
couldn't hardly tell the sunshine
for all the rain.
Losing weight and worried about my health,
often sitting and wondering,if I brung all
this on myself.
Just wanted someone to love me,
giving up on love altogether and scared
of not being happy.
I am a champion and I made it this far,
and I'm learning to trust and love again
with all my heart.
I am a champion and I won't go back,
I'm pressing forward and keeping
my life on track.
