No life is lived easy, and nobody can live your life. And its cruelty could break you, if you donít fight to survive, and itís your choice to fall or to stand. And its lessons will mold you, define you, and it will become your story to tell. And no life is lived easy, but if it were, would we be who we are today?
A life of crime is all that I know. The streets are hard, cold, and itís so easy to slip through the cracks. Iím struggling to stand, but I am what I have lived. If I were to step away from that, who would I be? Could I survive the normal, everyday life? Would I make something of myself, or would I fail like so many times before? How do I go on when my past clings to me?
The road behind me is long and broken, but I have not walked alone. I found strength in bond, love in heart, and I carried on. But the direction was wrong, leading me into a cage that I may never escape, and if I did not stop walking, I would never be able to turn around. But in turning back, would I have to say good-bye to the one that has carried me, the one that held me strong? Would he give up this life, but I knew that he would not? This is all that he knew, but is it the life meant for me?
