the moment i loved all the times i’ve fought

It flies in the air
It floats in how we care
Doesn’t need a reason or a rhyme
Just an inner season without time

Some call it a once in a while high, others a source
Some just believe, others make it their course
We all agreed at some point that this is living
But we forgot to clarify purposeful giving

It’s in my fingertips when I write
Flowing in my blood when I stay and fight
Pulses through my breath in the heat of a fiery now
It’s the magic string that lets my universes bow

It’s not a special skill or a chosen power
It’s the choice to be what’s beyond the hour
We’ve all felt it whether it’s been seen or not
The moment I loved all the times I’ve fought

It’s the something that connects you and me
The something that makes our words free
It’s the smile when something resonates
The fearless fire when a spark detonates


Author’s Note – in this piece, the words “fight/fought” are meant in the way of choosing to fight and to live rather than just getting through life or waiting for a moment to be over. Yes, “fighting” is often used in the negative but, in my life recently, it’s been one of the most positive things…and it will be that way in my writing too :).

  1. Every moment counts in life, the important thing is to learn from each of those moments in the actions performed with the love and determination that built those moments.
    Excellent poetic sentiment, my friend Grace.

    • Thank you so much, Lincol! Yes indeed, my friend…so perfectly said! Thank you as always for your thoughtful support, means a lot 🤍🤗


  2. I love your personal definition of “fighting” and you explain it well in this thought-provoking poem.. You are one of the people who lives their life awake;when you are conscious you really Are conscious of how you live. You have a deep eye for observation, especially for yourself, and your conclusions and observations are many times very universal. Thank you for sharing this unique angle dear Grace. It’s always such a pleasure to see from your eyes my sweet poet.
