Battle Scarred


I fight you with silence
I fight you with tears
I fight you with knowledge
I fight you with fears

I fight you with art
I fight you with verse
I fight you with words
I fight you with worse

I fight you in the cold
I fight you in the rain
I fight you when the wind blows
I fight you through the pain

I'll fight you each day and night
I'll fight you to the death
I'll fight you with all I have
I'll fight with my last breath

  2. Fascinating image. And sometimes life is all about the "good fight". (I imagine it exhausting, though)

    1. Thanks Gabriella, I suffer with atypical facial nerve pain so it's referring to that for me but I tried to write it so that people could relate their own 'fight' to this also .

  6. That must be some pain ~ Like the anaphora poem, the refrain works really well ~

    Happy Friday and I hope you feel better ~
