    Another day has been and gone, another battle lost,
    One more defeat, step back, retreat and count the cost,
    To the body and mind, you'll find it comes close to insane
    In this game that we play, that we fight to keep the pain
    But one day I'll be done, and that day has not yet come
    But it's coming, and I know that I'm not the only one
    I'm still standing, barely steady, I repent but don't regret
    That my past has led me here, but I tell you place a bet
    On me in some future time or place, because one day I will be free
    One way or another, even though looking back it can be seen
    That I've faced the countless setbacks, taken on all foes
    May be shattered, may be broken, beset by fear and woes
    On my knees, pleading scared, but I'm still somehow breathing
    Begging for help too many times, caught in useless silent screaming
    A moment of weakness, but one that's lasted many years
    Too many battles lost, but I still fight, I'm still here
    Ready for another war, another shot at absolution
    One more attempt at a happy ending, a final conclusion
    So I fight with the demons, dragging down on my mind
    So I fight with the past, and the future, and I find
    That I fight, not for me, but for every broken dream
    Every drop of blood that's shed, every piece of shattered self esteem
    How can I say that there's hope for you, if I don't believe
    I can overcome my fight too, so some day I must achieve
    My peace, my salvation, so I can in good spirit say
    That you can win your fight too, and though it may not be today
    It will come, so just know as you step forward to fight
    This fractured warrior stands with you, as we move towards the light
    The only thing I ask, is that perhaps you might do the same
    In my darkest hour, and when caught in sinister refrain
    That you keep your faith in me, even when I have none of my own
    Please don't leave me in this darkness, please don't make me fight alone

    You got it right Azoth, never give up. You are not alone. There is a bigger picture to all the pain. There are lessons hidden there.

    Its not a fight that's needed. Its a surrender and a whole new view, a whole new story.

    A refocus and intensifying of the desire on that peace and salvation you want. A little more each day, in new ways.

    Look for your answers, put the pieces of the puzzle together, think deeply.... let the momentum of pain peter out and dream up your new story.

    You will eventually and gradually slip into a new space, a fresh place. Your on track for that, from what you have written...I feel it.

    Beautiful poem! I know it can be hard sometimes, but we all have to keep fighting and not let life knock us down.

    Thanks for the positive comments everyone :)

    iwanttohelp, it depends on the circumstances I feel, some things it is important to let go of and accept, but I have to believe that by my actions, I can make it out of this. Maybe that attributes to myself power beyond that which I really have in this world, but... I guess it's the difference between accepting that something is, and accepting that it's something that should be. Not to fight reality, but to fight to change reality.

    total eclipse, I appreciate that, and it's a frustrating paradox that the times I'm most able to look for support are the times I least need it. I know that a lot of the fighting is within myself, rather than fighting the world, to not leave negative thoughts unchallenged, even if I accept that for now I can't beat them.

    Witty_Sarcasm, you've put me in a bind, because I don't want to start quoting Chumbawamba, but it fits perfectly! I'll resist the urge though, life will knock us down, and keep knocking us down, but as long as we can still get back up again after, that's what matters.
