overcome.

All of these scars,
the restless nights
of feeling like the worst was yet to come,
the retreating to darkened bedrooms
and wishing mornings would never rise,
All of the silent suffering,
All of the uncertainty,
the gray areas, the dead ends at each “wrong” turn–

It has brought us here,
turned us into warriors, survivors–
still standing, anxious but breathing
and alive,
knowing we can overcome.
