✍🏾📔I Want To Live📔✍🏾 ✨🌹by, Maxwanette A Poetess 🌹✨

People go through their struggles & experiences in life. There are times when the pressure can become too much & one wants to give up but can’t. It can be frustrating & suffocating all at once. We become so worn & thin, that breaking & giving up can seem like the easiest options. We have to remind ourselves of how far we’ve come & that with every breath that we take, we can do this!

I Want To Live!

You can take my children, my man, my job everything I own,

Creep inside and try to destroy my soul

But, I Want To Live.

You can try to fool me, and tell me all is well,

Make my life a living hell,

But, I Want To Live!

You can laugh and ridicule me all the time,

Fuck around and mess with my mind,

But, I Want To Live!

You can think that you’ve already won,

I’m here to tell you, it’s just begun,

Because, I Want To Live!

Medicating, deceiving, poisoning, distracting, feeding like a cancer,

I already know they’re not the answer,

Because, I Want To Live!

I’m not lazy or even crazy, just had a hard life

I am tired of your dual-mirroring, stop giving me strife,

Because, I Want To Live!

I’ve been knocked down, kicked beaten, worn & torn

Cast aside, Black-Sheeped, Labeled & scorned?

But, I Want To Live!

Stripped of everything that’s good, trying to take my motherhood,

Why am I labeled society’s outcast and gravely misunderstood…

Because, I Want To Live?

Watch, wait and you will see, I won’t be silenced for anybody,

Be amazed by my recovery,

Because, I Want To Live!

Rising from the ashes of misery,

There is a beautiful life inside of me!

Because, I Want To Live!

As I inhale & exhale, my eyes shine and my smile widens…

“I AM ALIVE!”
