This Is How I Survive: 55%
They say that damaged people are the most dangerous, for they know they can survive. I had never thought of myself as damaged, though--just different. I guess they thought otherwise. They took me from my life and stole the air from beneath my wings. They caged me and studied me through bars, first asking questions and then resorting to beating information out of me. They found no answers, but I knew they never would. After sixteen years, I hadn't, either. They thought they could contain me forever. At some point, though, a bird must fly, and with the instinct of a wild animal combined with the will of a human, I would never stay in captivity. This is how I survive.
