I Am Unbroken

I am me because only I can be,
I am me because, through time and space and all that may change, I am left unbroken...
 
 
I am my past, my future, my ever growing potential,
Shaped out of pain and suffering that only I may know, 
I am me because of my own decisions...
 
 
I am me because of every step I've taken that I imagined was the right one,
I've unintentionally set in motion events in my life that will inevitably bring my success or my downfall,
I am me because of this...
 
 
I am me because of all the nights I've spent looking up at the stars, hoping, no, praying that there's more, that I'm more...
I am me because there's nothing else that I could be that would ever truly follow the "flawless" design that was etched into our souls...
 
 
I am me because of the love and support I get for even the most selfish of things that I've done or thought,
I am me because, through all that I've been through, all the moments as a kid that I've laughed and cried till my stomach hurt, all the moments where I stood in the cold unforgiving rain for an answer to a question I didn't even know, I still stand,
I am me because I am left unbroken...
 
 
I am me because of all that surrounds me,
 
I am me because of all the things I've seen,
 
I am me because... What more can I be?
