Still standing

“I pep talk myself words I don’t believe in.
I try to convince myself I can make it
But deep inside I don’t really think I can.
I stare at myself in the mirror and I don’t see pretty
I see lost and hurt, emotions crumbling inside me.
Every new day, I breathe in and I breathe out,
Simple as it is turns out into a daily reminder:
Life happens
But I’m still standing.”

  1. Lots of reasons to stay standing. The world needs thoughtful, talented people more than ever, and you meet that criteria. And of course, there’s chocolate too! xx
