Life is a Battlefield.

Today is a big battlefield
Mid morning still
and fighting my way
to function
to move
to manage some office work

The physical and mental
versus me
Constant battling

I work so hard
to get to my desk
to think
to draw some lines
Challenging myself
to achieve
just a little bit more
than I thought capable
just minutes ago

I reach out in my pain
and struggle
And even though they aren’t here
encouragement is sent back
gentle support
pride, in me
And humbled
I choose to shut out
the loud negative inner voice
wanting to curl up and sleep

The lone soldier
perhaps winning the war
Labelled a hero by others
Just doing what needs to be done
in the moment
caring little for himself
just for the job that he has been given
The job of surviving

  1. One of my favs! Sorry for being away! Will get back to everything in a few hours. Just thought I would say hi, and I really enjoyed reading this one!! Very emotive again, touched a soft spot as well, sounds a lot like the battle I have had the past few weeks. Hope your having a good day.


    • Hey, thanks for your comments. Sorry that you have been experiencing this too. Yet it sounds like you are out the other side a little right now, I hope so! I have so little energy to keep up with other’s writing at the moment, so I’m just plodding away at my own words, seeing what comes out, what helps, what means something. Take care.
