Battle Cry

And so the battle has begun…
A constant tearing at my soul as if I’m the only one.

Trying to lay waste to my harvest so fair…
Whatever it takes to fill this heart of mine,
With disappointment and despair.

What is this heaviness that buffets me deep within my soul…
I fight and I kick with all my strength,
And still it refuses to let me go.

Almost I yield to the weight that’s bearing down on me…
Perhaps it’s better to be a captive,
Than constantly fighting to be free?

And even though at times I may feel worthless,
As though I’m fighting an endless war…
That still small voice gently reminds me,
Someone greater than I, believed I was worth dying for.

And so somehow from somewhere that inner strength comes…
Though weary battered and beaten,
In my heart the battle has already been won!
