How today’s poem can help you:

Author’s Thoughts:  I want to hold light, love, and peace.  I want that for all others, but I know some just hold dark, contempt, and violence.  We need protectors, warriors, who will stand up to those people.  I just wish we didn’t need them so that they too, can hold light, love, and peace. Thank you for your sacrifice.

The Fight

I’ve been places
and done jobs
that no one else
wanted to.

Others have been places,
and done jobs
far more worse and difficult
than mine.

Those jobs
helped me understand
what it means
to serve.

And while I have great respect
for those who protect
freedom, liberty, and justice for all.
I wish they weren’t needed.
