by Sumati Muniandy

It has been a rough road; I think I have a long way to go
Life is indeed a constant whirlwind of obstacles
I have been challenged by the trials life has thrown at me
Feeling downtrodden and lost
We have our silent struggles within us
I have been weathered by myriads of circumstances
I have struggled with insecurities and self doubt
My heart has been scarred and broken
I stopped for a moment to reflect how far I have come
I have learned grace and perseverance
I have learned to remain calm
I honour my struggle as I am going to get through it
I am going to take a step at a time.
