Fighting battles
Against hypocrisy and ineptness
Seemingly outnumbered
Odds stacked against
Forfeiting never considered
Constant combat
Drains energy and strength
Renewal of vigor
Inadequate and lacking
Keep soldiering on anyways
Sometimes feeling solitary
Defeat feeling closer some days than others
Meets loved one's eyes
Doesn't trust the reflection in them
Of love, admiration, pride, promise of support
Afraid the hope spoken of
Is a thirsty man's mirage
Easier to battle the known
Than leap into the unknown
