Her Greatest Weapon

She was drowning in the darkness

Before she knew it wasn’t normal

Everyone around her was fine

And they thought that she was, too

 .

She painted over the cracks

With lipstick and nail polish

The chaos around her

Made her swallow her fear

 .

She wasn’t able to heal

Until she was good and broken

She had to face her own demons

Before she could find her light

 .

Now she keeps her head high

And pays the darkness little mind

She chases the light every day

And every day it teaches her to fly

 .

Every day is a battle

And an escape from her past

With focus and work

She knows it will last

 .

And others who find themselves

Lost in the dark

Look to her for guidance

So they can regain their spark

 .

She is still afraid

The darkness finds her all the time

Only now, she can face it

Her greatest weapon is her mind.
