I never knew that I was so strong,
I guess I am just discovering.

A new journey I'm embarking on,
my life again I'm beginning.

A brave smile, a twinkle in my eyes,
My walk full of determination.

A glance here, a glance there,
looking back but not to ponder.

I'll smile at you, like I always do,
let's see if you can look deeper.

I'll let you hold my hand, if that's what you want,
but just so you can walk along, not as my soldier.

I'm strong now, I'm strong today,
finally I can walk this way.

Maybe this is not how I thought things would be,
but I'm not complaining, I'm not trying to flee.

I'm just living my life now... an eternity...
I'm strong. :)
