I must push through
no matter how misunderstood I may be.
I must carry on
in spite of what people think they see.
I must continue
because I know what I fight for.
Battles may feel lost
but I am worth the win, the war.
I am sick but not lost; I am ill but not different. I am just trying to find my new normal in a world that is difficult for us all.
