Fighting battles deep inside

Inside I'm in pain, in agony but outside nothing seems to be out of place
My legs feel weak, I feel drained, outside you don't notice what's wrong
Every step feels like a flame burning slow and steady, every sensation of pain is a treasure
For so long, pain and I have been hand in hand, she feels like a part of me, cruel but a reality
Each breath does not seem to make it go away, rather it proliferates rather in a few seconds
The weight of mistakes, the weight of my past, the duty I have been trusted with, it all makes it hard
But every time I look in the mirror, I feel a change, a tiny change; a change is there
Though I may not win in the short run, I plan to succeed in the long run ahead
Too long have I given up on the effort, too long have I failed to make a difference
I have my chance now, I have the opportunity, I shall win, it's hard to win but it is possible
Keep me down but I will fight to the top, maybe you just have to believe in me 


  1. Yeah of course I believe in you and those strong and elegant words of yours. I believe that "IMPOSSIBLE" is just a reason for those who don't try. Your poem is very encouraging and powerful. I like it how you started out with a doubt and ended up so confident in yourself. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  2. Jim Morrison once said, "Listen, real poetry doesn't say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through anyone that suits you." Your poetry, at times, allows for that. But on occasion, it lends itself to emotional qualities that reach deep within the reader. Congratulations, S.A.M.
