fighting back

Love After My War

Soul Poetry


I fought for me.


And at long last,

Did I decide

That enough

was way past



I prayed for a peace

For strength,

And prayed for

The courage

That until now

Eluded my

every step.


And with the heart

Of a battle ready warrior,

My soul my weapon,

I made my stand,

Stood fast

And fought for

My very life.


After countless years

Of defeat

Of battle-scarred losses,

This was my


And victorious,

I emerged.



I fight that fight

No more.

I have found peace

In triumph

And love

After my war.
