We the broken ones.
We the damaged by our distant past
and early memories.
We shall rise too, but stronger.
We the ones who carry
all those scars they cannot see,
reminders that we are vulnerable
and still dare to expose ourselves.
We the ones with secrets
we wouldn’t dare to speak out loud.
We shall keep the smile
even in the darkest hours.
We the ones who walk right next to you
and you pass by without seeing our pain.
We shall endure.
We shall withstand.
We shall live and love,
because we have known darkness
we shall embrace the light.
