One tough battle
All we want now
Is time to rest
To forget about the pain
But we can't
We don't have time
To put down our weapons
We can barely
Catch our breath
Because the next battle
Is just ahead
Waiting for us
And, like it or not
All we can do
Is to stand up
And face it
Something I wrote between classes. Enjoy.
Sometimes the battles are worth it at the end of the day.
There are never any ends; just new beginnings.
Very nice! Definitely a piece of inspiration.
Beautiful truth. Good job.
Woah... I don't really see why, but there is something strong in this poem... It inspire me a lot !! *-*
vary nice and true too
Quite true - especially for us students! Get through one boring class, only to realise there's another right after it...
This is a wonderful poem...brings a lot of thoughts to mind...
One of my DA friends NoFaceTheOwl has recently posted a journal, "The young fools of war". One of the things he mentions is how during the WWII the Russian Soldiers fought knowing there is no retreat...since they knew they would be shot by their own comrades at Stalin's order... Well, they won...Perhaps every battle should be fought with the knowledge that there is no retreat...
Yet another thought this poem brought up is something i was thinking of recently, in my ballet class, on a tough day, when I was out of energy, out of balance, out of inspiration, out of breath.... How do dancers, athletes, musicians, actors perform on a similar day... I realized that it is like fighting a battle where retreat is not an option.... One just gathers the little strength they have and pushes through to do their best...
This can be seen from multiple perspectives. I saw it through the eyes of a student, trying to make it through the exams (my current situation). But you're right. There are battles we can only fight to the end with all we have.
Very nice work, you really capture the anxiety and tension well.
Are you in the military? I wasn't sure if this was specifically for soldiers, or just using warfare to explain the idea. Either way it works well.
Me? A soldier? No, not at all. This was actually inspired by my final exams.
But thanks anyway
