I will not choose to define myself based upon your limited vocabulary.
Stupid. Dumb. Worthless. Trash.
Is that the best you have to offer?
Failure. Disgrace. Waste.
I am so much more than your mind can comprehend.
I am resilient, courageous, fierce-hearted, and brave.
I have walked through the fire,
Climbed the highest mountains of heartache,
I have found my voice to shout echoes of hope,
And, most of all, I am stronger than your words.
But, then again,
There are some things you will never understand.
