You Will Never Break My Spirit – Promote Yourself



You first visited me at age six

While I was playing in the hot, Southern sun.

Dragging into the house as my vision turned dark,

I begged my mom for a drink of water; but

You refused to let it stay inside.

You did not break my spirit.

Over the years while playing sports and living an active life,

You visited from time to time.

A constant reminder that something was not right,

But I fought back and worked even harder.

You were up against a very determined young woman.

You did not break my spirit.

You came back with a vengeance as I aged,

Slowly shutting down my body systems one by one.

It only made me more strong-willed to fight you;

Have a strong marriage, raise a great daughter, earn

College degrees, and have a successful career.

I refuse to lose faith in my God.

I refuse to go down without a fight.

I refuse to let you win.

I refuse to be ruled by you.

You will never break my spirit.

  1. Beautiful! I am wondering about the thought behind it though. Who’s breaking your spirit? A man? The devil?
