Shadow Boxer Poem by Jon M. Nelson

Shadow Boxer

As the darkness slowly begins to settle in,
I can feel the evil, the hatred, and sin.
I'll attempt to counterbalance the fight,
When I use love, purity, and the light.

As the shadows around me get stronger,
I don't know if I can hold on much longer.
The demons bring an overwhelming fear,
I will state my position loud and clear.

The evil always tries to possess my soul,
But I feel that I have a stronger goal.
They'll always try to get the best of me,
But I will not be conquered that easily.

In the corner of the shadows, evil stands,
But I too will have a few helping hands.
It seems the evil around me has grown,
But I will not be fighting it on my own.

There's a vicious attack from the shadows,
I have a strong defense for the blows.
I stand and block and do not fight back,
For this is not my moment to attack.

As they try to move in to go for the kill,
The peace surrounds me as I stand still.
With a knockout blow they stood no chance,
And over this evil I do a victory dance.
