More Than Surviving

Location

She is perfect.

Prosperous grades,

Belle hair,

Admirable girl.

 

She's stuck up.

Favorable grades,

Pretty hair,

Commendable girl.

 

Her home is broken but she has

improving grades,

Ambitions,

A job,

A future.

 

She keeps herself together 

for her

not for the people talking about her

or the family members making her life hell.

 

She spies the necessity of 

Earning 

Constructive a life for herself 

Outside of the struggles she's faced.

 

Outside of the yelling

the cops

the hospitals

the loss,

 

She's trying

and that makes her worth it.
