Survival

the words of a young soul

Survival is many things.  It’s the pounding in your heart telling you it’s all about to fall apart – again.  Everything you worked so hard to piece back together came crashing back down.  Chaos became your comfort.  How are you to blame when it’s all you knew?  You silence your truth for the comfort of others yet are chastised for doing exactly what they want.  We live what we learn, after all.  They showed you how to survive and when you didn’t do it well enough, you mastered the art better than them.  Is it any wonder, they can’t understand the place you come from?  They broke you, they made you, and you finally broke free.  You found your voice and you shattered the facade.  Your survival belongs to you, and only you.   It’s the agony only you know as your life song.

Inspired by my dear friend and fellow Advocate, Grace Durbin.
