An Express It In Eight prompt inspired this poetic reflection the morning of my birthday

Dear strong, courageous, sensitive one,
today marks another year 'round the sun.
You battled through with all of your might,
all the letting go has been quite a fight.

Think about all the work you have done;
the difficult struggles you've overcome.
Be proud of just how much you have grown,
for you're now the best you I've ever known.
