    From deep beneath
    the crush of smother,
    I pull myself from under.

    Woke up and realized
    I could trek these
    many, many miles.

    I am a survivor.

    When I sensed
    I was sinking below
    the earth, I walked on,
    grabbed hold and pushed
    myself on.

    I own great will.
    I am detrmined
    not to fall
    to the knees
    of weakness.

    I have arrived
    and will no longer
    succumb to failure.

    I possess strength
    and have found
    within myself,
    my savior.
