I Am

I am humbled because I've experienced humility. I am encouraged because I've been discouraged. I am confident because I've seen hope. I am beautiful because God has given me life. I am forgiven because I've admitted guilt. I am responsible because of irresponsibility. I am qualified because I've had experience. I am open minded because of the bigger picture. I am empathetic because I've seen apathy. I am strengthened because I've been weakened. I am happy because I've known sadness. I am loved because I've experienced hate. I am gentle because I've seen roughness. I am peaceful because I've experienced violence. I am powerful because I've been powerless. I am wise because I've been imprudent. I am uplifted because I've been depressed. I am knowledgeable because of my teachers. I am successful because I've known failure. I am compassionate because I've been heartless. I am all of these things and so much more. I am human. 10/20/16
