“Against All Odds”

I need time to breathe,
to see the setting sun
before my time is done.

To feel its heat
upon my time weary face,
to walk among the green grass,
like when I was a child.

To accomplish this
will make me happy finally,
something I forgot to be.

Life eats you alive
if you don't reach for the stars
of higher expectations,
in that which is humanity.

By being who you are,
not letting the cold world
take a bit out of you.

You make a statement,
survivor, yes I am a survivor
and I will not let the world
beat me down in any fashion.

Just say you are human,
you are resilient and strong,
you will survive against the odds.
