(She Overcame)

She is a wounded warrior.

She is damaged by the circumstances dealt to her in life.

Yet, her soul reminds her that she isn’t defined by times of strife.

They merely add definition.

Too long, her world seemed to revolve in a chaotic, never-ending spin.

Then one day she realized she deserved a life much better than it had been,

and broke free from the shackles she had entrapped her in.

Then this time, as life’s piercing blade sliced deeply into her skin,

she chose to let her demons out instead of inviting more of them in…

When wounds can be healed,

And scars can be sealed,

life-changing wisdom can be instilled.

There is something exceptionally beautiful about a wounded warrior.

Inspiration comes in many forms…

She is a wounded warrior.
