I am fighting a crucial battle
Blood surrounds me
It is not my blood
It is the enemy’s blood
My allies stand next to me
Those special souls fighting
To save my life
Most of them I do not know
Some of them are family
Some of them are friends
Most of them are strangers
Wanting me to be me

My mother fights beside me
My brother joins her too
My friends are charging
With an unseen power
My hope is forever growing
The strangers aren’t strange
Some of them are teachers
Some of them are people
I barely know
Some of them are fans
Of my poetry
But they are all there
Fighting a battle
Helping me

I know this may sound strange
I know when I need help
But this is not one of those times
This is a battle I need to face myself

I need not all the wicked weapons
I need not guns or bombs
I only need a strong will
To save me from myself

I need to fight to be different
I need to be unique
I don't want to be one in the line
I don’t want to be another Barbie

I guess that this will be
The hardest battle
I’ll ever fight
Because I can’t hide
Behind someone else
And if I fail
I cannot shift the blame
If I fail, I lose myself
To all the other clones
But this is not some
Movie
Where all the endings
Are happy
This is reality
Where you have to fight
Just to be you

"If I am an angel paint me with black wings"-Anne Rice

Madelyn this was some real Big bizzle fo shizzle. What a head trizzle. I like this psychotropic malaise.
