The Struggle

I’d rather be broke than ask for money
I’d rather starve than ask for food
I’d rather be homeless than ask for a roof
I’d rather struggle & be weak than ask for someone else’s strength to lighten the load
I guess this is partly due to pride, not wanting to owe anyone anything, which some may view as stupidity or a weakness
But it’s also because if I struggle, cry, bleed or experience pain I believe that when I finally reach my desired outcome I will appreciate it that much more and find strength from the fight I had to overcome by myself
