soldier

strength is a curse
disguised as a blessing.
a signed contract stating
in order to have the strength
to save others 
you must first save yourself
countless times. 
exhausting raggedy breaths
fighting the toughest battles
ill-prepared and unsure how to win
knowing you must be the victor.
you were supposed to be a kid
but you became a survivor.
