The world to me has always been black and white.
I’m learning to see the grey.
I equated myself to a mighty and solid oak tree, unwavering and strong.
Now I see it’s better to be a tall and majestic palm tree, able to bend but not break.
I make mistakes but am remorseful.
I learn from those mistakes I have made and try not to repeat them.
I am happiest when I am with my family.
I continue to fight to keep my family whole.
I am strong.
I keep getting stronger.
