I've had a lifetime to deal with all this pain,
at one point, I think I went insane.
I've always made it back to myself
except I always lost a part of my self.
I love who I have come to be
but sometimes I wonder if it's me.
would I be the same had life been easy?
probably not, I prefer turbulent to breezy.
At least I've had my lessons to learn,
for their lives, I will never yearn.
The pain has made me who I am today
and I will have it no other way.
I've had a hard past, that's easy to see
but it has made myself a better me
