the fight keeps the pain alive
hurting and living synonymous
suffering gives proof of life
wars of body and spirit waged
balls-to-the-wall without mercy
determined unwavering fearless
clenched fists steel-set jaw
gnashing teeth fury red in the eyes
ruthless weapons of weaponless
combat the courage entailing the
fight is what gives life its worth
at least that’s what I’ve come to
discover about my own truth
