Battle


My mind falters,
trying to remember
the different beginnings
I had imagined for this.

Strength is returning
ever so slowly.
Lack of patience
is rewarded with
more stillness.

The battle within
has peaked.
The soldiers are picking up
their dead, some
marauding along the way.

But they are leaving.

What remains will show
survival,
not surrender.
