This day I reflect back and I laugh and cry in the same session.

I look around and I’m very aware of all my blessings.

I can remember, late nights stressing.

Waking up with blood in my eyes,

I didn’t want to get up; another power shook me and told me to rise.

Questioning myself on the daily,

On my knees saying, Lord, please save me,

Surrounded by darkness

Throwing my hands in the air, screaming, I surrender and you can have all this.

My pain was a part of the plan.

I’m thankful and I’m always celebrating.

Congratulations, I made it.
