Read a friend's poem, and became inspired by their structure.

Played around a bit, and here's what came out.

the darkness that I feel inside
it fluctuates and swells, and yet
I do not think it will prevail
against the light inside my soul

the light that shines from my red heart
it banishes the darkness there
if only I would just believe
in strength of heart, but I don't know

sometimes I doubt and look away
and sometimes take a step or two
I think I hope to disappear
to not face death or tragedy

but I know that retreating will
not solve my issues and my fears
I need to stand my ground and fight
for everything that's dear to me

with flowing words in hand, I fight
with hope and faith and something more
I strive to push the darkness back
and regain what was once mine, lost

an everlasting battle, that
but this I realize with my soul
to never win and never lose
but worth the battle in the end
