I am Who I am

I do not define myself from how many barriers have appeared in my way.

Though I define myself from the strength I have found to find new roads.

I do not define myself from the amount of times I've been pushed down.

Though I define myself from how many times I've struggled back onto my feet.

I do not define myself from all of the displeasures I have met.

Though I define myself by the forgiveness I have seen to let myself begin again.

I do not define myself from the bullies of my past.

I define myself by my friends of today.

I do not define myself by my relationships.

But I define myself on how much I love and am willing to love once more.

I am not my past.

I am not what they say I am.

I am who I am.
