We exit the womb and enter the demons lair

Our minds the only weapon against the mortal slayer

In the fog some grow lost and completely confused

They couldn't escape their personal mental abuse

So their purpose for existence then begins to corrode

Like a time bomb ticking that is waiting to explode

They grow weaker as evil starts to show its power

That keeps growing stronger with each passing hour

But some won’t succumb and fight with each breath

In an on going battle waged until their day of death

In the shadows where a lot of our ancestors stood

Stand the gladiators of all that is pure and good

Author's Notes:
This poem is from my 3rd book-
The Journey-At The Crossroads-
I originally wrote it because of a situation I was
dealing with on another writing site a few years ago-
Since then it has become one of my favorites from this book-
I really like the concept of how we each face good and
evil in the people surrounding us in this existence-
There are people who would belittle you for no reason
other than their personal satisfaction-
~So this is my Wish~
That we each find the gladiator
who resides within YOU-

Well, like all your writes before, this is a wonderful piece! Fantastic write....I feel that it speaks to the fighter in all of us, reminding us that, even though we have to fight occasionally, we can fight for GOOD and not just for the fun of the fight.
great job...

OHHHHHHHH how true this is. Everyday is such a struggle sometimes if I can't overcome the demons of the past. Oh how this poem is one I can relate too!
EXCELLENT!!! This poem makes me feel strong and like I own my destiny.
