fighting back

Love After My War

Folder: 
Soul Poetry

 

I fought for me.

Finally,

And at long last,

Did I decide

That enough

was way past

Enough!

 

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

Gettysburg,

And victorious,

I emerged.

 

Now,

I fight that fight

No more.

I have found peace

In triumph

And love

After my war.
