“Courage In A Breath”

The strength to carry on,
is determined
in your heart and soul. . . .

mine has been battered
like a boat against the rocks of time.

When your back is against 
the wall,
do you fight or run. . . .

I say fight the good fight,
or your life will have no distinct rhyme.

Do you stand up for what 
you believe,
or retreat in the mist. . . .

where  onyx shadows hide,
your belief in right from wrong my friend.

Courage from within is built
brick by brick,
through tribulations. . . .

trials under fire as a human,
stay in the kitchen when it gets too hot.

Of a life hopeless of light,
yet you will
carry on through hell. . . .

to taste that which is heaven's gate,
a far cry from the demon ridden existence.

Saying no to human sin,
of a world
gone crazy, to breathe once again.

Timothy Michael DiVito c2020
