Survival

Survival

A Poem by C.N.Moore
"

A dedication to every parent who has ever struggled to put food on the table, thank you all for never giving up.

"

Struggling from day to day, to make ends meat.. bills to pay.

Under the loaded gun of stress, your pay is little.. their appreciation less.

Rarely does hostility show, when optimism is all you know.

Varied odd jobs.. you just get by, you lack the skills but still you try.

If all this weight wasn't enough, you have a child and must be tough.

Vicious people drain your soul, negative energy takes its toll.

After all of this is said and done, when you come home to that little one.

Looking directly eye to eye, you see their love.. you will survive.

Being a young Mom this hits home. Very few can even get pass graduation. So when I went down to a health clinic to get proof of my pregnancy and they asked me my level of education they were appalled when I announced that I received my four year degree. Sadly, this doesn't make having a baby any less stressful. Your life begins to take on a new meaning, and that new meaning becomes yours daughter. :) Thanks for the recognition. I wonder if they will ever comprehend how much parents go through to provide. I don't think I truly realized all the sacrifices my Mom made for me until I became a Mami myself.

I love this! 8 lines with a very powerful meaning!

We sometimes don't see how our parents work hard for us, we at times neglect them and disregard. We simply take them for granted without knowing how they have worked hard for us to have a better life than what they had :)

A very good poem indeed!

Good job :)

spelling ...to make ends meet (meat) ...a well timed poem for me this one, except my kids are all grown up...stress really is a killer, and I realy do let people at home drain me, but its my fault, assertion is a mountain peak I'm still trying to reach...one day at a time. Thankyou. A loaded gun was a very good way to describe stress.
p.s... my own spelling is very poor...so don't be offended, I always ask people to correct my spelling.

Such a thankless struggle until you see hope glimmering through the eyes of your young. We will do and give anything to provide. Sometimes, it is just so hard. "under the loaded gun of stress" Wow, did you ever hit that one on the nose. Vicious people most definitely drain your soul. Surround yourself in love. Oh, and of course, you Will survive and are assuring a better future for those you love. Many, many people will connect with this.
