I leant to be fiercely independent some 10 years ago.

In a foreign land with no friends, a new migrant.

I did not allow myself to wallow in self pity.

I offered my time to volunteer in the local community.

In so doing, I made friends in first offering myself as a friend.

I was driven to be independent and I am my own rock.

This little rock now stands strong, not shaken by the storm.
