Struggle

Do not accept accept defeat if that is the only choice given.
You may not see the other choice.
Fight, though there may appear to be no answer.
Perhaps an answer is not what is needed.
Fight, even if the body may be weak.
The mind is always stronger.
Fight, for that is the battle before you.
The soul wants to win.

Ooh, great poem. Between you and WriteNow, you've got me fired up for the day!

It reminds me of a tense moment in Clint Eastwood's 'The Outlaw Josey Wales', where Wales tells his companions: "Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is." :)

Thanks, Spy.

Bernard, I used to watch Eastwood's movies when I was a kid, maybe they had more of an influence than I knew.
