I Will Survive by Desiree Cady

I Will Survive

I will survive 
Because it was not too long ago
That I once walked away
From a devil in disguise 

I will survive
Because I have been broken down before
Though this time without you
There is a lack of life sparkling in my eye

I will survive 
because I know that as much as it hurt before
It hurts a thousand times more now
But there is one thing I still have in this life

I will survive
Because I have two beautiful girls
I have to survive because I am their hero
And there is no doubt that they are mine

I will survive 
Though I don't have the slightest clue how
But I will survive because how I handle this
Will teach my children how as they watch with their innocent angel eyes

I am a 33 year old mother of two beautiful girls who have been my saving grace. After a brutal attack a few years ago, I have been plagued by PTSD. After the attack and a few suicide attempts, I vowed to tell my story and help inspire others to get help and to know that they are not alone. 
I am currently wrapping up two manuscripts for publication and am set to be published in an upcoming anthology that will come out mid - November.
