The Challenge

Tears are not going

To change my fate,

This bitter truth

I comprehended late,

Shadows will chase me

If I run,

I must turn

And let them

Squarely face me

There is no option

But to fight,

Must not cower

Or retreat,

To the Demon’s

Delight

Let me hold back

My tears,

Take a deep breath,

I should take life head on

And defy Death
