Poetry

My Joy

On no one else will I depend

On no one else will my smile bend

My joy comes from within

And when my heart does break

It will also mend

It will not only mend

But grow stronger as it learns

That my peace is a part of me

Not a result of all I observe

No it’s not from my friends

My work or my sacrifice

But from who I am 

And how I interpret this life
