Battle, Battle everywhere

Disagreements and Arguments

Arguments and Conflicts

Are running

Fierce, fierce

Throughout our land


Opposing forces

Forces are constant

Constantly butting heads

But, I am currently dealing,

Dealing with the most important

Battle of my life…..


I am struggling,

Struggling, struggling

To win the war

The war for Dominance

Raging, raging

Inside me


Three different opponents

Are taking a stand…


The person I was

The person I am

The person I want to be


Deadlock, deadlocked

In their separate views

Similar conflicts that leads to

Small Skirmishes,

Civil Wars

And Revolutions


One wants to stay,

Stay in the past

Misses the carefree

Free lifestyle

And dislike change


One lives for the now

Focus, focused

On today's drama

Being pulled in different directions

Do not have time for tomorrows


One refuses

Refuses, refuses

To stay in the past

To live in the now

But, keeps seeing endless

Endless possibilities of tomorrows

And wants to open

Open some of those doors


Who will win this conflict?

Who will stand its ground?

Who will surrender first?

Who will be on top?


Will my inner conflicts ever be resolved?

Will they ever find commonality between their conflicts and reach a reasonable solution?

Will my body, mind, and soul have harmony and peace again?


That's my Battle

Battle for Dominance
