Whose battle are you fighting?
Your own or someone else's?
That might seem like a strange question to you,
But have you considered if it's true?
Will you fight for truth to win the fight?
Or will you fight to do things because it's right?
That might not seem reasonable to you,
But have you considered what's motivating you?
Will you fight with others or your own opponent?
Or will you let fear, ego, anger take the moment?
That might seem like not a possibility for you,
But have you thought whose battle you're trying to prove?
Will you let love and peace be the biggest fight?
Or will you lose focus in it's painful price?
That might seem like nothing to you,
But have you thought about what it means to you?
