Looking To Be Seen


I am a survivor of things no one wants to talk about.  
I am a statistic of too many numbers to count.
I am a fighter.
I am a believer that all things are possible.
I have hurt deeper than I thought possible.
I have looked up at the world,
 I have stood next to the sun, and I have cried tears like rain.
I have hidden from life.
 I have asked "why" more times than I care to admit.
I have spoken my truths and fought for my beliefs. 
I have lost but in losing I have won.
I am human.
 I am imperfect
 I am as weak as I am strong.
I am no longer silent. I am no longer hiding.
I am looking for what everyone is looking for...to be seen!
