this is for two special friends of mine,
and for me...
well....I guess this is for a lot of us who fight the fight inside....

but we all knew the fight was fixed

my own personal war...
I am the commander in chief
I am responsible
for word and deed.
All decisions made
come back to me.
When all is said and done
I know
I have to chose my battles wisely
because, I am the soldier
who fights the fight
I am the one who hates the hate
I am the one who loves the love
and when I break, I am the one
who cries the tears.
When I crumble
I am the casualties
I am the one who didn't make it
up the hill.
I am the one who hurts, bleeds
and dies.
I am the medic
who rushes in to pick me up
and nurse me back
into this world,
bandage the wounds
and carry me home to my safe place
to look for healing there.
But we all knew
the fight was fixed
so it was up to me to rally the troops,
to call in for reinforcements...
cause in the end
I have to look
me
in the eye.

(and the allies all stood ready by
and cheered)

A great reminder that we are the Captian of our ship, the master of our fate.  We are responsible for everything that happens to us. This poem expresses an important message and that holds true for all.
Well written!

Danny's right... Henley's Invictus is one of my favorite poems... "In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud... Under the bludgeonings of chance, my head is bloody but unbowed." Still, the memories are hell. *S*

Wishing peace to you and those friends. *S*

Good for you sweetheart...they say all is fair in love and war but much depends on which side of the battle you are on...

The imagery indeed is quite vivid, and you've brought forth most everyone's silent thoughts on their true inner feelings.  Well done, fc!
