You grow so very tired, yet you do not quit. 
Your thoughts weigh you down, yet you do not give in. 
Day after precious day, you fight a battle that seems as if it is unremitting;
you wake up with the sun and war with the unseen. 
Battered and bruised awaiting the next blow, 
you know full well that you will come out still breathing. 
You will not allow the dark to overcome
the brilliant light within.
