I Was Raised - Poem by nyna bankard

I was raised with structure
I was raised with pride
Though the structure may not have been proper
I was raised to survive.

I was raised with tough love
I was raised to earn my keep
Though tough love may have worked
I was raised with troubles deep.

I was raised with bad habits
I was raised through struggle
Though bad habits can be broken
The change can be quite unsubtle.

I was raised with strong beliefs
I was raised to accept my faults
Though my beliefs might be distorted
I was raised by 'His' default.
