Worth Dying For To Live - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

Never will I give up
the fight for my soul
the fight for the shine in my eyes
I will search young women and old
cheap bars and churches
to fuel the fire that burns
wildly through my
remorseless soul

I will not give in to mediocrity
I need passion and purity
true love and true friends
and true emotions that rage
beautifully
into the darkness
of my mortality
to be my own inspiration,
guide and savior of my
sanity

it has been a busy fight
but the only one worth fighting,
worth dying for
