The Beauty In Struggle

The paths we walk
give us sights to pacify.
Words we speak can
give sight to the blind.

With all our senses
utilized to communicate
some take for granted
lessons from mistakes.

The most beautiful people
are the ones that overcome.
The most stubborn people
think life a race to be won.

There are those who compete
there are lives of struggle.
Unburdened privilege jades
while the broken lift each other.

Despite indifference
perseverance colors the sky.
The innocent find resistance
while liars seek places to lie.

Overcoming this earth
leaves bruises and scars.
Innocence can dine in alleys
while privilege takes you far.

Privileged people care not
for character they long forgot.
They fail to see strength
in lessons learned in battles lost.
