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.
