When you believed you were nothing.
When everything you loved deserted you.
When you crawled out of the abyss.
When the darkness was so great it swallowed you whole.
When failure tried to pinch your soul between its greedy fingers.
When everyone you cared for broke your heart.
This woman that you are today.
You became her by breaking.
Over and over and over again.
Allow no one to take that away from you.
You are valuable. You are precious.
Because you build yourself from shards.
You broke to become.
