I Am A Survivor

© more by Caroline White

Published by Family Friend Poems June 2021 with permission of the Author.

I am not everything
that has happened to me.
I am everything I became
while I healed.
Stronger but softer.
Focused but not obsessed.
A teacher but still a student.
I am not broken.
I am beautiful.
I am a survivor.
