When i look within

Tarkeshia, Friends of Guest House, April 30, 2020

When i look within

I see a very humble, happy, and compassionate person

who has been through a lot of hardships in her life.

I no longer see broken, beaten and bruised woman

who didn’t even realize her existence.

Today i see that woman standing stronger

through all adversities and living life

on life terms like normal people do.

I’m grateful that, that woman i see is me.
