Stronger - Poem by maria goodison

Now I know who I am
this world will not change me.
Now I can feel this body living
you will not keep it any longer.

This life is mine, not yours
and this how the game is played.
All who want to have a go
will only fail compared to me.

Now I know who I am
this world is not going to keep me down.
I’m stronger without you in my ears.
I’m more than the credit you gave.
I’m better than you thought me to be.
I’m the hell that you will not talk about.
