The Battle

I wrote this while at the hospital (with Insane Mama). I was exploring the transition from where I was to where I was headed.

Internal battles within the war
Climbing from the trenches
Fighting uphill
Dazed and confused
The landmines of life

Shrapnel hits from the ones I love
I fear the fight and want to lie down
Sink into a fox-hole
Watching life go by
The danger above rivals the pain inside

Can’t climb out
Too weak
Sitting too long
Tree roots and vines snap from my weight

Helpless and hopeless
Starting to give up
A rope swings down
Reaching feverishly
Hope is in sight

Is there enough strength to climb out again?
Gripping for life
I need to be pulled up
I hold on for life
The life I know I can have

"The life I know I can have"

Good for you, many still believe it remains out of reach.

I hope you and Insanemama have a great life. You two have experienced more trauma and drama than anyone I've ever met. Good Luck, and thanks for all the fish..
