I am a survivor, a warrior, no matter how far I fall in this life! My short time full of hurts and scars, all my journals read like memoirs; I endured the wreck of childhood, before many tombs- I have stood; I have walked hand-in-hand with death, leaving my tears on baby's breath; I wear my pain but I am a fighter, I pen strength because I am a writer. I am a survivor, a warrior, no matter how far I fall in this life! I have had a long battle with illness, prayed to my God in the stillness; Not all wounds are visible to the eye, the fear of blindness will stay till I die; Even with disability- I fight, and live each day with delight; I am not ashamed of my darkness, never a victim in days of starkness. I am a survivor, a warrior, no matter how far I fall in this life! How many times have I started over, the defeat- I have had to turnover; I have stood strong in every storm, shame vs strength like bees in a swarm; Many struggles in this life to endure, but with courage- survival, I will ensure; I am a fighter, a warrior brave, and I will always ride life's great wave. ________________________ August 28, 2017 Ballad/I, am a Warrior Copyright Protected, ID 93432 Written for the contest, I'm A Survivor sponsor, Julie Rodeheaver Twelve Place
