A Survivor’s Tale
It was dark and the weight crushing.
Life oozed out bit by bit.
I struggled to survive, one breath at a time.
Loneliness engulfed me.
Oh the pain the anguish the isolation – all for what?
Doubts racked me.
Why struggle so much?
Who cared whether I lived or died?
Why not just give up?
Believe me, I tried hard to give up.
But I didn’t know how.
I only knew one thing.
My time would come.
And it did.
That’s my story. What’s yours?
She swayed and dipped, offering me yet another luscious mango.
