I am a survivor

I am a survivor
My life has been hard emotionally and physically
Several times I've been given second chances
Do I really take
advantage of them ?
I don't think I do
There is always the feeling of peace
 when you start over
My body tries me every single day
The hope of being what I used to be
Well, it's gone down that path
 and is hidden from sight
I hear it 
 walking in front of me
I even call out
Just a laugh
echoes back towards me
With the blow of the wind against my face
This time I have something staring me down
I have that fear of the known
The been there and done that
issue looms over me
I am stubborn
I am mad
I will continue on my way
I will kick and scream
I am mad as hell
I woke up from a coma
and relearned to walk
I can over come this

I am a survivor

My name is JC
and I'm not going

(and now I'm off to pet one of
those elusive five cats
of mine)

Very powerful stuff, petting a critter with help!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
