Caught between who I am and who I want to be
A battle of the past still fought in the present
The struggles to be and the longing to move on
Thoughts to give up, wishes to survive
Caught in constant fear, as the fright within pushes me away
A battle long finished, still goes on within
Then… comes a twist, on the battle field
The battle is mine to win
Setting my strategies to suit my grounds. moving to the next level
A battle is won, but, I am left with more battles to conquer within,
as i battle hard to survive another day. Suddenly!
Seeds sowed, starts blooming into beautiful flowers, on rigid soil, which was once declared barren
Here I am, a Hero of my Kind
The Stranger in me is none but me again
***This poem is dedicated to Soldiers, who are caught in between who they are and want to be***
Never give up, there is always hope!!
Especially if HOPE is yours to mold!!
