Why I Fight

I’m filled with
this thrill
this can’t be still
this high in
this hymn from within
it’s time I tried
to describe my
I keep climbing
on this drive
with no end
in sight
I fight
the urge to flight
or resign polite
instead of staying
and facing
the night
here I write
to define
my mind’s
truest dear delight
I fear I might
not know the sight
of my insight
my will
my might
but I
will try
to win the fight
for that right
for my life
