surrender to yourself in battle (free verse)

surrender to yourself in battle,

when the anger becomes scary

and you feel the fears overwhelming you

like creatures scurrying up your body,

and you feel as if your head may

go underwater

once it's time,

when life flashes before your eyes,

there is a bright light

of Mother


are you ready to come to me?

what then, does your soul need:

to stand in victory of defeat,

or triumph after battle?

both can be chosen

when this battle isn't for you

but for what you know is good,

you'll fight 'til death to protect
