Fight against the dark

by joetwo

To fight against the dark,

To struggle against the night,

To keep alive the spark,

To help keep hope alight.

To fight, to strive when all seems gone,

When day has turned to night,

When all was lost, you fought on,

You held on to the light.

Many men who see your plight,

Consider you a fool,

To fight on when your death’s in sight,

Against their golden rule.

These naysayers have no heart,

They have to taste for glory,

The tales of heroes has your part,

And all will know your story.
