"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee

Left alone
Left behind
Left unconscious
Left to die

Right there waiting
Right within reach
Right on death's door
Right on the breach

Wrong to fight back? Or
Wrong to give in?
Wrong to give up? Or
Wrong to contend?

RIGHT to beat every odd doctors stacked against you
RIGHT to show your scars and let your story debut
RIGHT to turn your back on death's beckoning hand
RIGHT to smash the hour glass and scatter the sand

This is my take on something that happened to a girl in my community. She was beaten and raped then left in a ditch to die, but she found something within herself to pull through.
