I am strength;

Overcoming the hurt,

the challenges, the trials of life. 

My shoulders hold it all,

even more than I thought I could.

 

I am determination;

Focusing on the future,

pushing ahead, forging forward.

My voice roars as the lion,

louder than I thought I could.

 

I am beauty;

Comfortable in my skin,

Singing my song, writing my lyrics

My soul stands confidently in my truth,

firmer than I thought I could.

 

I am happiness;

Seeing past the tears to joy,

embracing light, enjoying laughter

My eyes see the amazing potential,

clearer than I thought I could.

 

I am love;

Bursting open with passion,

judging none, smiling to all,

My heart opens to hug the world,

bigger than I thought it could.

 

I am all these things and more;

Living each day in the collective,

Part of you, part of me,

My spirit is one with the Universe,

feeling blessed more than I thought I could.
