War Within Myself

I have a survivalist mentality
That's a part of who I am and it won't go away
Sometimes I take a break from reality
Dreaming bigger things than what is given to me today
There's a war going on and it's within myself
Too humble to break down and ask for any help

I seek God for resolution and guidance
No human can assist with my own defiance
I wish the war would end and I form a one person alliance
Merging my mind with my heart to be in sync is a form of science
Whatever happens is ok because at least I tried it

Never give up on bettering yourself
This advice I give to anyone who I care about
Growth is necessary to keep our life chain going
We water the plants and feed the kids to keep them growing
Feed your mind with knowledge and your heart with love
Synchronizing the two is going to be tough

The war within myself is a personal battle
I am not about to sit here and live in someone's shadow
I must fight like there's no other choice
Doing it my way because I am my own voice
Personally I need to figure out a plan
Something for my soul to be as happy as it can

There's a war within myself and I am not pretending
I know I am the only one who can create my happy ending
The outlook is good and I am on the right path according to some
My war will finally end when my mind and heart become one.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
