Fight of the Night

Today we have a guest post from Madison Ruttle over at Lost In My Head!

to the fight of the night,
fight for being right–
The fight between me
and my guilty regrets;
The fight between
what I want
and who I want to be;
The fight between
and diffusion
of the truth.

The boxing bell rings,
commencing the fight.
The battle is full blown;
Punches are thrown
causing wounds to the bone.
I’m trying to win,
but I feel drowned out by the stress.

The fight seems never ending;
I’m growing weak.
My energy is ending,
but I won’t give up defending.

The battle could go either way,
but I know
that, even if today I loose,
I can strap on my boxing gloves
and try again.
