Survived

All of these lines across our faces,

All of the scars we’ve had in our lives.

They’re a gentle reminder of who we are,

And what we have survived.

What we’ve overcome,

What we’ve now become.

Where did we fall,

How did we rise

What made us thrive,

And what we have survived.

Our stories must be heard,

For others to get inspired.

It’s not about something deprived,

It’s about what we have survived.

-Soniya Agrawal
