Survival

Survival

Survival is an instinct
Born of necessity 
Protected
at all costs
as you would a child
and like your spirit
it can never be taken
from you
 
It is all you have when
times are dire
Your resourcefulness
when you are without
Your resilience 
when you are knocked down 
It lives and breathes
within you
 
It is always present
yet hangs in your shadows
until you call upon it
and give it life
Your will to survive
paramount
Your kiss of life
Your oxygen
