ALONE (for Poetry Jam)

SeagullReflectioninapond

 

Monsters haunt my days and my dreams
They work, unceasing, to bring me down
convict me of my weakness
that I will lose hope and surrender
to the darkness in my soul.
I walk through the shadows
to face the horrors
hankering for my fall.
How long should I fight?
How soon would I yield?
Love gives me courage,
Alone I fight my battles
I am the decisions I made.

  1. I think a big part of being human is the fight to keep those monsters away. We have to keep walking & keep fighting. Glad to see you in Poetry Jam.

  2. Agree with Jamie..small but very powerful. Reminds me of “Invictus”
    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll.
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.
