The Battle for Authenticity

10 Oct

In love and war

they say,

All’s fair.

 

But drafted from the battlefield

a declaration of dependence

violence, fear and distrust

is brought into existence

Reclassified as love.

 

We volunteer for this.

 

Our planes – one minute soar

the next – shot down

Our parachutes – one minute open

the next – hung from a tree

Our bodies – one minute able

the next – taken prisoner

Our minds – one minute lucid

the next – held hostage.

 

But the enemy is me.

 

What wages war for freedom fought?

Ego.

 

Ergo,

I surrender.
