I am like this because it was necessary
In order to survive the experiences I have had.
I was not always like this.
Being this way has had it's ups and downs but,
Overall, it has made me more resilient.
I don't know if I'll always be like this.
I hope that one day I will be even better,
If not, I'll be satisfied to at least be alive.
Who are you, really? How did you get that way?
