Survival
Inspire me?
Inspire me, who?
For I have gotten here
all on my own.
For the pain and suffering?
Well, I made the choice
to let them in.
So that's on me
not on them.
I call it Survival.
Not everyone survives 
abandonment like I did. 
Not everyone surpasses
poverty like I did.
Not everyone deals with
suicide ideations like I did.
Not everyone comprehends
mental abuse like I do.
Not everyone has dealt with 
domestic abuse like I did.
I bond with wolves
because trust and loyalty
isn't just given, it's earned.
We are strong in front of others,
but docile with our pack.
We guide and protect
even when sometimes
we want to be the protected.
But there is a big cruel world out-there,
where weakness gets you mauled.
This is Survival.

-M.M.
