Because I exist
Because I am free
Because I am the only ever me
Because I bear witness to the life I carried within me
Because countless women and men journeyed before me
Because the world doesn't revolve around (nor end) with me
I live, I take stock of my day,
I quiet the voice that undermines my spirit,
and I never give up the fight for a better world, a better tomorrow, a better me.
Having a plan seems like the first step, knowing that its ok if I mistep seems like the second.
