Battle within

Updated on December 8, 2012

With every morning that I wake up,

I fight to remain strong.

Every time you see me smile,

There is a battle beneath tats going on.

Every moment that I live,

I try not to remember the dead.

When you see me silent,

I'm phrasing words inside my head.

There are times when it gets too much to bear.

There are times when I feel there is none to care.

Those are the times I wanna succumb and die.

Those are the times I wanna give up the fight.

Even then I battle and keep my heart going.

What's the point giving up when there might be a chance of winning?

      Where there is hope, there is light. No matter the struggle, if there is the slightest glimmer of hope, the world that surrounds us may allow us to move forward. Excellent job!

      Morning Hajira.

      A very emotional poem, wonderfully written. But full of sadness, which I hope is only in your poem, and not in your own life.

      I could relate to every talented line you write. Amazing insight and self awareness. Such honesty as to what goes on behind the masks we tend to wear and people so strongly want to believe.
