I feared love
Until it touched my heart,
Making the darkness fade
Into bright sunny days

I feared death
Until I realized that it’s not an end
But a beginning.
I feared the future
Until I realized that life could get better.

I feared the past
Until I realized that it could no longer hurt me.
I feared the dark
Until I saw the beauty of light.

I was scared of the light
Until I knew that the truth
Would give me strength.
I was scared of rejection
Until I learned to have faith in myself.

I was scared of change
Until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly
Must undergo a metamorphosis before it can fly.
These lessons I’ve learned in life

I OVERCAME

My trial looming
Sadness lasting
Tears overflowing
Wound not healing

But I overcame

My apparel getting tattered
My flesh becoming leaner
My beauty appears fading
Emotion seems unstable

But I overcame

My weakness so glaring
Their whisper getting louder
Hatred ascending in numbers
Challenges undeserving

But I overcame

My heart shattered and broken
Hands girded in chains
Feet held in shackles
My every step took me back

But, I overcame
The screams in my head getting louder
Hope seems far fetched
Visions blur and unclear
Waves raising
My sky glooming

But I overcame

My courage did not fail
My action kept my going
My dreams became my reality
My willpower became my motivation
My persistence became my sweat
My ability became my influence

And

I overcame
