Invincible

Dear Life,


You can freeze me with fear

But your ice will be melted by my burning vehemence

You can cut me with pain

But I bleed rich, red resilience


You can chain me with the shackles of self-doubt

But my soul will always be endlessly free

Try to shoot me with the unexpected

And I'll become your biggest anomaly


Oh life why do you challenge my invincible soul

Do you think I am one to quit, to fall, to beseech

Through every obstacle I emerge victorious

Because triumph is the blood and I am the leech


You burned down my garden

But I've already planted more seeds

Keep dimming my sun

My perseverance is all I need


In this overwhelming ocean you've thrown me in

There's tide after tide, but I know how to swim

Give me all you've got

I'm always going to win

I wrote this poem as a way of responding to all the unexpected health issues I have developed. Even if I don't feel like it, I try to tell myself I am strong and can handle anything. I hope you all are feeling strong and beautiful today.
