I have spent all my life running and hiding
Avoiding people who would attack me regularly
I was afraid of being hurt, marked and scarred
But when I finally arose off the ground
I could look down on myself and see
I am full of wounds and scars, but most importantly
I am standing on my feet.
Now I fear no harsh words, judgement or attacks
Because I know that I can stand tall and be proud
And I can declare to the world, 'This is me'
This is who I am, and I like who I am
No matter how boring or neurotic I may be
I fear no one because life has taught me
'You cannot break the broken' !
