Everyday is a battleground, I fight for every breath,
struggling to keep the pain of life from outweighing the finality of death.

    I wasn't implying that it was better, just that I was struggling, but I do think it's better. TY

    Hi Linda, long time no see... Haha.. am missing you, i don't see this as couplet but free verse. Nothing couple about the poem. It is a free verse of 7 lines. Couplets are spaced in two lines stanzas.
