To Those Who Grow

It matters not
how
you have suffered
or by whom;
pain is a teacher
most universal
in its lessons.
What defines you
is how use
this pain.
You may wallow in it
and waste your strength
in an endless pity party
or you may swallow it
and grow ever stronger
for facing it.
This
is how we define
a life.
