How many ways to fight … stand up for or against something?
Battle the enemy on bloody front lines to defend flag and home;
Fight to mend a broken heart or resist a shattered dream;
Oppose age by repelling sickness so youth won’t surrender;
Fight to control clean air, water … protecting nature’s home;
Retaliate with legal combat for diversity and better justice;
Fight for human rights where no free experience is threatened,
Repress malice, discrimination, inequality and poverty;
Lock horns and butt heads with possibilities and reinvention;
Fight the good fight against all odds and slings of misfortune,
Help me to be real, not a perfect warrior, with courage as my compass;
Yearning to believe words and ideas that can change the world;
Give me the strength not to kill Truth nor abide with liars
And honor peaceful transitions without beatings, false flags and death.
“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, never stop fighting.” E.E. Cummings
