the good fight


people fight

for their ideas,

for their values,

for their honor,

for their families,

and for their nations.


others also fight;

but, they fight

for their next breath.


Short, powerful, to the point. A very good inspirational poem. I wish you would have expanded the second stanza to include a little more details into fighting for your breath.. If you could expand it, making it more detailed but still keep the simple power of it, I think it would be perfect. I really enjoyed the piece though, remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Keep writing- Isaac


congratulations, this is the first piece i've given a five to. well earned.

the poem is just so brief and full of intention that as you finish the last line, you find that it's already pervaded into your mind and you get one of those epiphany moments where you realize how, while some are busy defending their ideas, some are just barely able to defend themselves. it really puts everything into perspective quite beautifully. well done.
