I Cry

  
There are times when I look back over my life 
and I cry.
I reminisce on the victories won
and I cry.
My heart's dam bursts forth with tears 
of joy.
I refuse to be sad.
For every door closed in my face
God opened up windows and flooded my soul.
You may see my strength,
but you will never know,
nor will you understand the tears
that I've cried.
Sometimes I sit and cry.
Why?
Because I've survived.
