Fight for all the right reasons


to fight for all the wrong reasons
to rationalize everything
love is the sole spring
inspiring, motivating, moving
if it's there, if it's real..
then it must be rewarding

to fight for all the wrong reasons
makes us fools deluding
contrary to the face of evidence
we inexorably keep on hiding
wounded yet unswayed..denying
must we brave all the bleeding?

fight for all the right reasons
