If you look closely, you'll see I'm not as broken as I used to be. My smile is a little wider, My eyes a little brighter, My heart a little lighter.
I've learned to live again An independence that was once lost It has been unearthed, it has found refrain No more than a week did it cost; Vitality once again flows through these veins.
I'm better, now. I don't let the small things touch my mind Stress has left me, something that only time can profess I am not as unkind I will continue to get better. This, I will vow.
Tears will not streak down this face Blades will not grace this skin I have made myself stronger through ache, Though it was a hard battle fought, I am better. I will not quake. I am steadfast in myself. This is not someone you can easily break.
