Infallible

My strength is
Infallible.
It was not bought
or borrowed or given,
it was earned.
Earned through tough times
and many worse,
through projecting a pose
of unbreakable stone,
through living to lose
and loving to live. And how.
I was broken and beat,
I kissed the ground
and ate the dirt,
just to clean my face
with streaming salt water.
I cut my knees
and scraped my palms
on sharp rocks and words,
and stayed there,
silent and still.
But still life was inside me,
I rose to walk again,
several steps in jubilation
until I fell, again.
Yet this time it was better,
covered by scars
the pain was condensed,
sharpened by skill
I caught myself
before the dirt
passed to my mouth.
So now, I will survive.
Slightly black and blue,
I can hold my own,
I know the world cannot snuff out
the strength that I have earned,
I dream of a better future
but prepare for one much worse
Sure that I am stronger,
from unrelenting, fortifying,
acrid adversity.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend
