This I Know

This I Know

My body is paralyzed. By gods strength someday I will be free. When that day comes, I will be filled with joy. This I know.

I haven't walked since the day I was born, on the warm backs of my parents and brothers and sisters, I can go anywhere. This I know.

I am unable to speak. I cannot speak gossip or speak harsh words. This I know.

In the midst of sorrow and pain, there is joy and happiness. In the midst of this, I am alive. This I know.
-Kumi Hayashi

This poem is one of my favorites. It reminds me of something I would write about myself. It is interesting to know how others feel, how they live, what they go through, and their outlook on life. It is also inspiring. That is why I think my blog is so important. I want people to know not only who I am but what I'm about and believe in. It is a miracle that I am alive. I am here for a reason and that's all I needed to believe in for me to start this blog and show others that there are other people out there; other people with lives different than their own. Thanks for reading my blog.


"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."
