Fighting

Water flower in Thailand

The poem “Fighting” is paired with a photograph of a water flower in Thailand, in response to a Gargleblaster challenge:

All my life,
I’ve been fighting,
to be heard,
to be respected,
to get more,

fighting to get stronger,
to wake up,
to cut back.

But, lately,
I’ve been fighting
to be still,
to be present,
to accept,

fighting not to fight.
