Spirit of Fight

Shadows pool around you
as if a part of your soul
Wrapping around your body,
holding fast
You fall to your knees,
cry out in confusion
don’t let these shadows last”

Thin streams of light
shine through the darkness
A savior, your rescue,
a friend?
You reach out to touch them,
pull them to you
However, they quickly slip right out
of your hands

You kneel shivering in the icy cold
the pools have delivered
Still reaching
for the thin streams of light
Fighting your way to find relief
from the darkness
That has taken the breath
from your life

A strong gust of wind
suddenly blows from your spirit
Quickly chasing
dark shadows away
You stand up in full armor,
triumphantly free
Of the shadows
darkening your day
