This isn’t your first rodeo.

You know the drill—
expect too much, let them in,
watch as your wounds
rebuild themselves from
the ground up, flowers blooming
where there were once scabs.

Time and time again,
it’s the same process,
but some things change.
These days, you heal faster
than you hurt. It takes more
for them to pierce through
strength that only grows
with every injury.

You cannot recall
when you evolved
from victim to fighter.
