This is a simple poem about finding strength inside, just when I thought I couldn't make it through.

The one constant in life is change

This one change I knew was coming

Here I am now, facing it alone

I only wish I had a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on

There is only me and I feel weak

Yet every day I awake to the sun, and one foot steps in front of the other

Before I know it, I have walked miles, left the past behind

Even though I feel weak and unable, a strength is rising up from within

A voice from deep inside is telling me that I can, I will, I am surviving on my own.

This is me, discovering myself and I.
