The Silent Foe

Written by: Kimberly Palhegyi

I am so much stronger, have been for so much longer than you know
Don't let the visual mislead you for I battle an evil kniving silent foe
Physical strength is what I want to surround me so weakness never will show

I can hide the flaw with a bright smile gleaming
and the elusion of perfection beaming

I fight as I surmise
that my health will be the ultimate prize

I know wellness is taken for granted 
by others who's fortunes were much differently slanted

My foe relentlessly shoves me around once in awhile
but my stubborn will pushes me through the next mile

Some might say stubborn is a quality unbecomming
but to me it is life sustaining and incredibally stunning
