MY INNER SELF
I have come from a distance not looking behind or in front of me.
I have felt the heat of a hot summer day and the frigid temperatures of a cold
I know what it is like to be knocked off my feet,
I have been hit in the face and have felt the pain of defeat.
I walk a path that has no end.
I have entered places with no welcome.
I have cried in secret.
I have looked into my most inner self,
I have found happiness within myself and
with the help of no one else.
