I, ICON

I rise daily from troubled sleep attempting to make sense of imagery.
I magination inside me peeks, anxiety occupies blanks with grief
C onscious wars with angry speech, again I decide to rationalize.
O nward, up, fight - ours is not to reason why ours is but to do or die; 
N ever give up, never give in- decide what's right, begin again.
I nward look and find your truth, outward search to find your own truth
I f man or woman was not meant to grow and change we'd die unclaimed.
C onsider this my icon's face, an aged woman, bathed in grace
O nly be kind, its all she asks, to each other; it's the right path.
N ow you know my ICON; be strong, be kind, and carry on.

Wonderful... // 7 // I doubt that the contest will ever be judged, though. I've had no response from the Sponsor.

Hi Debbie! Not the best to leave comment, as this is the only acrostic ever read! If they are all good as yours, think I could like this form!!! BTW, believe in the wee folk also! May have to lift elvish curses, however!
