right on the mark, we hit it,
and we try and find the arrow we used to keep for a
special occasion,
but our weapons were not meant to sit in
dusty sheds
and await the final battle, because sitting out the small ones
will ensure your
defeat
and the end won't matter quite as much if it
never happens,
because they killed you when you were defenseless as a
newborn baby
and were too hesitant to use what was rightfully
yours, when the opportunity
was right
and you still had many arrows left, yet,
to waste

Ha, I love this whole bow-and-arrow poem since I have a compound bow myself. I also love the lines "but our weapons were not/meant to sit in/dusty sheds/and await the final battle." I just literally sat back in my chair and said "wow" when I finished reading this. Because you truly "wow"ed me with this creative knack of yours. I could've gone my whole life without thinking about how important the small battles are XD Amazing work and keep on writing! ^_^
