I

I am better than what happened.
I am the hero of this story.
I can do amazing things.
I am bound for glory.
I am stronger than my memory.
I am taller than my shadows
I can leap over my pitfalls.
I can make all that’s bad, go
I am loved beyond reason.
I am admired around the world.
I am cherished by my wife,
My boys and my little girl.
I cannot be defeated.
I will not be slowed down.
I am the happiness in my smile.
I don’t even know how to frown.
I will never believe the whispers
Of the beast inside my head
I am alive, I am beautiful
The ugliness is dead
I am the hero of this story
I have nothing to fear
If I told you of my greatness
It would take several years
I am better than my past
I am stronger than my sorrow
If you liked what I did yesterday
You just wait until tomorrow.

  1. Wow! This is so beautiful, Matthew. I’m at a point in my life where I’m making a concerted effort to get to this point. Striving to achieve what’s described in you poem. Your words are fuel and inspiration to me in this quest. Definitely bookmarking and coming back to this again.
    How would you feel about me reblogging this work on my site?
