Who I Am

Take a deep breath

Try to ignore the pain

Press onward into a new day

Where the past cannot reach me

And dreams can be seen ahead

Don’t give up fighting

To retain my identity

And keep track of my pride

I may be disabled

By mind and body

But I am still me on the inside

Face, Empty, Woman, Wait, Waiting Time, Sit, Wall
