I am the master,

the controller,

I am the seargent,

and I am the soldier.

 

i fight the battles,

I lose the wars.

i reap the winnings,

and I forfeit the scores.

 

So this is my fight; 

i fight for myself.

 

by myself, 

between myself.

you see:

i am the gavel, 

i am the chains,

I am victim, 

and I am the blamed.

 

but I am still the loser, 

All in all.

from beginning to end

just myself in this one sided brawl.

 

give up the prisoner,I say.

go to hell, she says.

a slap.

a punch,

a pull,

a kick.

 

and it's just me all alone 

with myself,

a mess.

A lot of man vs. self conflict is portrayed in this poem. It really does show a human condition that most of us endure with the battle of ourselves. I like the poem and the message. Keep writing on my friend:)!!!
