I’ve fought for years, against every fiber of my being, “Keep fighting.” My body shuts down from the exhaustion I build my tolerance higher to deal with the pain;
“Keep fighting, Keep fighting, Keep fighting.” I can’t. How can you fight something you know you can’t win against? It’s inevitable, My unfortunate end.
I fight and I fight and I fight. And I lose. I always lose. “Please keep fighting.” That’s all I do. Constant loop of fighting the same battle, Over and over and over.
Silent war, I’m dressed in camouflage, Incognito efforts to make it out alive. But I’m not a hero. “Keep fighting.” I kill myself for others, but I don’t deserve a Purple Heart;
“Keep fighting.” You see my struggle, but never my attempts. I can’t save anyone. I can’t even save myself. “Keep fighting.” I surrender.
