Invisible War [poetry]

strong woman vintage

I am the slayer of
My own monsters.
Only I can fight that
which no one else can see or feel.

They terrorize me on
Dark and lonely nights.

I muster up the
Courage and Fortitude
from my past battles;
I have reminders of them
with the scars on
My heart and soul.

I know what I need to do –
What I must do.

This is war and there is
No crying nor room
for the weak willed.

I will march forward
Never stopping
No surrender
Conquering the demons.

I have the weapons needed
To be victorious.
Always the victor.

Watch me…

No one can stop me now.
