Why Do I Fight

Fading the blackness

With explosion of light

Eating away chaos

As sanity regains it sight


Righteousness erodes deep trenches

Through evils thick crust

As promise wields hopes hammer

And pounds it to dust


My fight has been long

A grueling battle it has been

For my quest to be wholesome

And free of all sin


But my resolve grows weary

And my will is getting weak

Just a balance between the two

Is all I now seek


How can there be a victor

In this ongoing fight

When it takes darkness

For there even to be light.

    Darkness is the absence of light, so your fight is victories because you're in the light. Nicely written!

              I had a strange dream where I was running away from someone or something.. The faster I ran I felt it catching up.. As I ran faster ahead of me was a familiar figure running too.. As I drew closer and touched the person ahead, I awoken.. Upon awakening I realised that I was both the person running after and away from myself and your poem really did put my dream into perspective..
