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
