Who am I, an #AlwaysKeepFighting poem for Jared Padalecki by Tracy Diane Miller

Who I am
A question you may ask
But to tell you who I am
Is not so easy a task

I am
A person with a history of pain
Yet I am grateful
For the compassion that I have gained

I am
Someone who fights self doubt
I struggle to see my unique gifts
To allow my creativity to come out

I am
Someone who wants to be strong
Even when I feel weak
Yet the journey to love myself first
Is a path that I constantly seek

I am
Someone who wants to survive
Even with depression as my companion
I fight to thrive

I am
No longer silent
Do you hear my voice
I will Always Keep Fighting
I have a choice
