Battle Worn

I wish I hadn’t held you back
I should have let the wolf run free
Let him vanquish the fierce enemy
I hate it and the strength I lack

I tear myself to pieces everyday
Rocking back and forth in the storm
I grow hollow exhausting every form
I fight to make it through the fray

The wounds are beginning to show
Energy no longer being what’s taken
More stolen now, no longer forsaken
Gritting teeth through every blow

They will not see all of my agony
Only for them will they see a smile
Work, determination worthwhile
Because soon I know I’ll be free
