Who's Winning?

By , Urbana, IL
You call me a loser because I read
You are correct,
I wasn’t winning when I watched the bruises grow on my mother’s face.
You call me a loser because I like different music
You are correct,
I wasn’t winning when I heard my mother’s tears in the night.
You call me a loser because I don’t have two parents
You are correct,
I wasn’t winning when my father told me he’d be back 15 years ago.
You call me a loser because I don’t live in a house
You are correct,
I wasn’t winning when I moved into a shelter.
Maybe you are right, I am the loser but then how are you the winner?
