But Survived

Good Late Evening World….. I Stand (sitting though) Before you Tonight…a 5″3 weighing in at 175 lbs black Woman of African Descent, I am Well aware that my “Life is not my Own”
I Refuse to Be or become, Bitter, Angry, Jealous, Resentful, Contentious or indulge in any other toxic emotion that will keep me a prisoner in it’s own right. I will Continue to Love in the face of Atrocities from Any Evil Force..

I Was Born Breach ( baby that didn’t turn around for natural birth) But Survived

I Have Been, Beat Up, Pushed Around, Bullied, Lied on, Cheated On, But Survived

I Have Been Emotionally, Verbally and Financially Abused, But Survived

I Have Been Shot, ( with a 8 gage shot gun at close range ) But Survived

I Have Been Near Death – But Miraculously Survived

I Have Been Cut Surgically ( with a very Sharp knife) But Survived

I Have Been Held Up at Gun Point, – But Survived

I Have Been Falsely Accused- But Survived

I Have Been Jailed ( labeled a criminal)- But Survived

I Have Suffered Great Losses ( Loved ones I love dearly) Still Surviving

I Have Been Friends with Disappointment & Fear- Now we are enemies

I Was Born An Overcomer

I Say All This To Say ” ALL OUR LIVES HAS PURPOSE.
WHEN WE GET KNOCKED DOWN, GET BACK UP HARDER, PUSH HARDER, STRIVE HARDER, GO HARDER!!!!!!!

  1. This is giving me hope for my future. You are such a strong woman and I am so proud of you, even if that doesn’t mean much seeing as you don’t know me. This post was amazing to read, and is helping me to realize that I can survive what life is throwing my way. Keep on staying strong.
