The StruggleThe Struggle,The Struggle by ~Pixel-AOS
By Emily Bailey
You would bandage fragile forms
Then with your daggers rend their blood
And leave their husks as food for worms
Their weapons futile, caked in mud
And you would siege the castle strong
And plant a seed of hope within
Then with your armies twist to wrong
And massacre with blood-stained grin.
I feel your weight upon me now
Your gnashing maw upon my spine
And beads of sweat fall from my brow
As I count down remaining time.
But you forget, how conceited.
You lift from me a heavy ton.
You forget I'm not defeated,
Not yet is this your battle won.
I'll push you back from deep inside
Past every fear and painful thing,
And forge a sword to kill your pride,
To make the very mountains ring.
With sword in hand I'll kill you, brute.
I will defeat you beast of doubt!
And no more will your plans take root,
But from this dungeon I'll climb out!
