My Body Fights

It commences when
a sharp stab of pain
burns through the tight muscle.
My body fights.

Exhaustion sets in
and swallows like a drain
until all energy is muzzled.
My body fights.

Raging fire from within
flows through the pulsing veins
while the head aches and becomes puzzled.
My body fights.

My body fights to win.
My body fights to live life again.
My body fights for mere survival.
My body fights.
