Poem inner Strength

 We live our lives to full. 
We pull ourselves back up when we are down and on the ground. 
We find inner strength as we go to any length to prove inner doubts wrong  
We are so stronger willpower to show our hidden gift inside all.
As we are not here to make the numbers up
Each day, we never give up as we tick off small milestones we achieve each day.
We put our fears to rest.
We progress gradually, moving forward with small steps.
We do repeats to build our biceps, which will allow us to lift ourselves out of our wheelchairs.
We want to be more independent doing things by ourselves.
As the selves are lower levels
As we have so much endeavour.
We are all so clever with growing as a person each day.
I pray for change to come and glow like stars that are
We have so far.

    Thank you @Globster :) I really enjoyed it and could resonate with it a lot, especially this line:
    Each day, we never give up as we tick off small milestones we achieve each day.
    I think it's so important to celebrate milestones - big and small :)
