Fighting a Hopeless War

Going against the grain

Fighting off the rain

I ignore the pain

In my futile attempt to stay sane.

I stare at the sky

At the stars, who seem so high

If I have no motivation to lie

All I ask is why.

In darkness, in sunlight

It feels so right

I have nostrength to fight

…yet I want to, with all my might.

Running away from my fears,

I fight in a manner so docile but fierce

Paying no attention to my peers

Dissolves my angst and indifference to tears.

I want no more

For I despise this war

I have all I long for

And between you and me, even is now our score.
