Look away from my suffering if you must
If you find the pain in my face to difficult to bear witness to
It is ok
For I hold no one responsible for the path I have walked
Traveling through has been my focus And intention
Never stopping to see the faults of others
For I knew that I must carry myself through the storm
That in the end the triumph resided in my own belly
Never to be distracted by the pondering of Why
Just accepting that what was laid upon me was for me to burrow down into, to learn, and to overcome.
It would have been all too easy to step to the side of
But I knew if I did I would Be stepping away from myself
This I could not do- no matter.
