Her is inspired by a current life situation. Sometimes when I sit down to write I don’t know what will come out. All I know is I sit with an emotion, put my pen to the page and feel. This poem is about me not giving in, not just taking a loss and making it about myself. I’m not taking this situation personally. I’m happy to see how far I’ve come because before I would have let this get the best of me. but not now. I am changed, I am a more rational person, and able to take my emotions out of this situation and look at the facts before I make a decision. People say you have to pick your battles, which you do, but every battle is a win because there is always something to take away. You make yourself better, stronger, more grounded in who you are. I don’t like to be underestimated, patience is a virtue and eventually everyone mess up, but it’s how I react that makes the difference. you can’t “beat” me. I’m still here and I do not let things like her, get to me, not this time.
