I will not break, a poem for @JennaRoseSimon by Tracy Diane Miller

I will not break

I will not break
I am not glass
I have survived
My painful past
I will not break
Yet I may cry
I have survived
My painful past is why
My self-portrait
My image I draw
I will not break
Though my heart is raw
In the darkness
Alone with my fears
I will not break
Despite a mountain of tears
I will not break
I will not shatter
Because I know
That I matter
I will not break
Not for a day
Nor for an hour
I will not break
I will empower
