You're The Light

I have always admired you 
because of the way you survived.
I can see the pain in your eyes 
but still they shine as bright as the moon.
I can see the fading marks of fight and war 
but still you don't cover up your skin.
I can see the weight on your shoulders 
but still you stand strong and tall.
I can see the darkness hovering around you 
but still you're all the light I see.
Because of the way you survived 
I have always admired you.
