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


Let me hold back

My tears,

Take a deep breath,

I should take life head on

And defy Death
