A battle rages forth within my soul
Endlessly vicious and taking its toll
My greatest fears coming to fight
Sending my world into eternal night

Named for my weaknesses, their strength is true
Depression and self-loathing to name a few
They know just where to strike
Inflicting pain upon my psych

A battle rages forth within my soul
But few allies I was able to enroll
Intelligence and kindness among them
For from these two my power does stem

They ready their weapons and prepare for battle
Ready to slaughter my fears like cattle
My fears laugh heartily, doubting my resolve
Unknowing that 'tis they I will dissolve

A battle rages forth within my soul
Each of my allies knows his role
Slaying that which keeps me from life
Ending that which causes me strife

My fears have been silenced for today
Dormant, but not forever away
Again they will come to cause me torment
Come to cause my emotions to again dissent

This is getting interesting. Being a graphics fiend, I'd like to see what images you would put with these verses.  Good job!

Why thank you Ms. deVine, for being the only person to respond, heh. I love comic book style artwork(like marvel comics, not snoopy and such) dealing with midieval battles with demons and dragons, so those would be the sort of images I would assassiate with this little triad of poems I wrote.
