I’ve been through some rough stuff, a past that tried to consume me and times that has tried to destroy me.
Honestly, I don’t know how I’m still standing. 
All the wrong choices, dead ends and terrible loves I chased, they all left me in pieces, every time.
You see, I learned that everyone isn’t like me- they don’t treat others fairly and they’re not open and honest about what they want.
That was a lesson I learned in the hardest ways from the ones that I tried to love..
I gave away my heart too easily and had my hopes trampled way too often.
There was a time not so long ago that the failures of my life and the weight of the world brought me to my knees, and I didn’t think I’d ever find my way out of that darkness.
But I reached my breaking point..and I broke.
But then, somehow, I kept going.
That’s when you find your strength and courage- when you don’t have a choice.
Broken, humbled and distraught, I still kept fighting.
With no one to turn to and no one to help, I began clawing my way out of the mess that had become my life.
It wasn’t pretty and it hurt worse than anything I’d ever known, but somehow, I managed to find my way.
Despite the pain, I still had hope.
Despite my failures, I still believed.
Despite my heartbreak, I never gave up on love..
For myself and my future.
I never meant to come down the wrong roads and make all the worst choices, I know now that’s what I had to go through to become what I’m meant to be..
But I wouldn’t change anywhere I’ve been, because the things I learned have made me who I am.
The fires of struggles tried to consume me whole, but I’m stronger than that.
I became the fire which tried to vanquish me and I rose out of the ashes.
These steps, no matter how small, were some of the hardest I’ve ever known.
But you know what?
I kept going, kept growing, kept burning brightly.
I had been through the worst, so I knew I could make it to the best.
So, yeah, I’m beautifully broken, if that’s really a thing 
Because those cracks, those flaws that were forged under pressure ?
That’s how my light gets in.
No matter what lies ahead or how hard my day is, I know there’s nothing I can’t handle.
I’m still herebstanding tall, strong and proud.
I’m proud of what I’ve survived,
proud of who I’m becoming,
and most of all,
I’m proud that I’m still pushing forward.
Maybe I don’t have all the answers, but I do know this..
No matter what happens or how hard things get, I always know -
I got this..and I always will.
