We’re not steel

We can’t be hit and not fall

We can‘t fall and not be broken

We can’t  always ignore the critics that judge us at every corner

Some of us know what it’s like to be teased with no mercy

Or to walk away from something and live with that

lingering regret

To always wonder if you’re on the right path for you

But through all these I’ve found something more unbreakable yet more moldable than steel.

Willpower .

Willpower  the Essence of perseverance. It’s the power to wake up each day and remember that yesterday is gone but today is a new day

That just because others hurt you doesn't mean they can stop you

That even with doubt you can still take action

That even with confusion you can still find clarity

Will is what divides the conquerors from the fallen

The champions from the defeated

The success stories from the could’ve been

Because in the end it doesn't matter where you came from or what your name is. All that matters is did you have the will to make it.
