I Remain Indestructible (Lauren Speyrer-Lafayette, LA)

  • I survived
Metaphorically I've fought through life and never backed down. Little did I know that all those struggles, hard decisions, and standing tall even when I stood alone would give me a mentality that guided me through tragedy.
  • You tried to kill me
I took you on. Two to one. Bet you never thought you could lose. The odds were clearly in your favor. I was the weaker sex. Unarmed. Bleeding. Bruised. Hurt. Your tortured me, in every way. You fucked with my head and you violated my body. You stripped me of my dignity. And I still one. Two against one. Odds in you favor. Man against woman. And u lost. Yep, u beat me, and to months later parts of me still hurt...but I lived. I fought you. Both of you. I took u booth on, toe to toe. Stupid move. I do not allow myself to lose. My decisions to live fucked you from the moment I made it. You poor men, u never stood a chance after that.
  • Transformed
I found myself after this. I am no loner doubtful of me. I am a bad ass. You can see it my eyes. My confidence is undeniable. My strength is obvious. I will not allow myself to be defeated. I will never lose this.

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
