I stand irrespective of how many falls I have had.
I smile, regardless of the circles under my eyes.
I laugh, knowing that I once had to use that mouth
to wail in anger and despair.
I hope, knowing that there is light at the tunnel.
I give up, not because I can’t keep trying, but on people
who hold the door open to show me their backs.
I fight, because I see thesame fire in their eyes because
they are in mine.
I love, fearlessless, passionately , no pretends, no halftruths,
100 percent all in..because Someone is worth it all.
I dance, life is a party.
I pray..because my knees are meant to touch the earth, my heart
open to love him, my lips to praise him and me to fully adore him
I clap, let them hear the cong sound soon to beat.
I keep pushing, because before i must become victorious ..i must
first win the battle and giving up on life and possibilities and future
is no option.
I believe. .because faith is all that I need.
I live..because that’s what I am..
A living testimony..
I am me..because I can’t be anything other than I am.
Stephanie Egberike. .is my name..
My words ..my gifts..
And I am a light. .meant to shine. .even if in my own world of
characters and magic…atleast it inspires someone to believe.
