A Fine Warrior

And I met this woman, a warrior screaming in silence
struggling to slay her never-fading demons
knowing she will never be called brave
for she fights for causes so alien and unknown;
not just to the world, but to her too…
Yet her fight is real, complex too…
The fight to pry her eyes open, and wake up…
To breathe in the day, to not give in to her tears
and fears that weigh her down
To face a world that calls her an arrogant fool
as she whimpers in fear within…
To be strong as helpers fail;
strong enough not to snuff out her hope to be hopeful
To accept the fleeting moment of peace
as her eyes take in the new moment of the present
that brings a true smile to her tired face…
I understand her as I return her smile
in the watery reflection, and remind her,
“Hold on brave one; you’ll be just fine!!!”

Thank you for reading 😊😊
