Stroke Recovery: Not a Victim

My husband Michael was very careful to be positive in all discussions about my future. He was determined to keep me from slipping into a 'poor me' mindset. This made me think about allowing people or circumstances to make you a victim, and this poem is the result.


You don't have to be a victim
When life gets really bad.
'Victim' is an attitude
Which you don't have to have.

Sometimes life is very cruel.
Unfair troubles come around.
People take you for a fool,
Try to break your spirit down.

In your head you can be free,
Keep your dignity and pride.
No matter what externally,
You can still be strong inside.

So never be a 'victim',
Or fall in pity's way.
Keep determination,
Hold your head high today.
