Today, I am a person.
I am stronger than I have been,
I am stronger than I was yesterday.

Yesterday, I was a person.
I was weaker than I am now,
I was weaker but not weak.

Today, I am tearless.
But as was yesterday,
I am not fearless.

Yesterday, I had cried.
But as of today,
I can say I've tried.

Today, I am human.
I fall and break myself,
Only to do it again.

Yesterday, I was human.
I fell and broke myself,
For another time over.

Today, I stood up.
And my feet now stand,
On faulty but solid ground.

Yesterday, I climbed.
My mind had followed,
As words were my ladder.

Today, I am prepared.
Soon, I'll  likely miss a step,
And fall right back down.

Yesterday, is a past day.
I've learned how to deal again,
Until a newer impact rises.

Today is who I am,
Yesterday is who I was.
And every day,
That means something new.
I feel better enough to say "I'm okay", but not well enough to say "I'm good".
But it's improvement, and that makes me happy. :D (Just a few more days, and I think Mother will pull herself out of her phase and I won t have to worry as much).

Wonderful. The first thing that stands out here is the idea of improvement, the idea that we live and learn and, with that, we geep getting stronger. It's quite inspiring and even beautiful. On more technical terms, it's not very short nor very long, making it well balanced. The layout is simple but it works just fine. In terms of flow, it's quite good, at least when you read it, it sounds fluid and the simple language makes it easier to understand. I must say that it has a deep impact on the reader as well because it's a personal piece and it touches our emotions, creating an instant connection.
To wrap it up, well done and keep getting stonger, OK?
