THE.FIGHT

When you want to pack your suitcase

with memories long gone

just so you can open them up in your new beginning

and hold on

to what used to make you suffer

and keep you back

at the end of the line

with time it will be just like the old days

and you will end up back where you began.

Instead, start fresh

make new traditions that heal you

and throw away the old you

and forgive those who know you

become a new truth.

The fight will be grueling

constantly battling with the mind

harming the body

losing the spirit —

It’s not all bad.

Because your muscles will tear

it will ache in your bones

it will manifest as darkness in your soul.

Without that, though,

the only way to go

is back up again.

Keep fighting and you will win.
