I am from the heartbreak growing up—
the bickering, fighting, and arguing.
heartbroken and scared…
I am from the traumatic events in my life—
the deaths, breakups, and divorce
determined and ready for hardships that come my way…
I am from my sister—
Who gave up growing up, taking care of my us, and the working for my sister and me.
Makes me sad….
I am from overcoming challenges—
bullying, anxiety, depression, and a eating disorder. Changes, scared, and lonely.
Accomplished and confident..
I am from the scents in my house—
The brownies in the oven, my grandmother's scrumptious apple pie on Thanksgiving day, and dinner when walking in from school.
Excited and joyful…
I am from sayings from my parents—
“Never give up,” “there is always light at the end of the tunnel,” and “don’t let the little things get to you.”
Hopeful and pleasant.
