battered and broken
I will stand back up
even though the ground is sweet
and soft
I could rest there
let the blood flow
and the bones settle back together
I could close my tired eyes
and sleep
but instead
I will pull myself back up
onto my bruised and aching legs
and fight on
even though you are still bright and strong
and the grass is so soft
and peaceful
the reason you beat me
is that I am down
if I stand back up
you will learn to respect my injury
and endurance
so I will
