Three Strikes

Three strikes against me and I’m still standing. I’m still fighting and not leaving. I’m not going away. What’s wrong with me? In my heart and in my mind, I get stronger. I fight battles with myself so what makes you think that a battle with you would be so tough? Maybe it’s because you’re weak. Whatever I have that doesn’t kill me only makes me stronger. And there’s nothing there threatening you. So, you’re wondering why I keep fighting. Internally, I’m being beat up. Beat down. Throw up. Spun around. Dropped. Kicked. And ignored. What is it that makes you keep going? Just because I have three strikes against me doesn’t mean that I’m out of the game. It just means that I’m going to play harder. I’m going to be what I thought I never could. I’m going to make it through. I am somebody worthy of importance. I am important. I have three strikes against me but guess what? I’m still standing.
