Fought for my soul today

I fought today
A rather fearful battle.
I beat today
My dear old friend
Ambition.

I fought today
A very frightful onslaught.
I wrestled down today
That strong antagonist
Called fear.

I fought today
A war against temptation,
And for an endless moment
I thought I’d given in.

I fought today
The battle of my life,
And found the odds were even,
That I was not alone.
A friend spoke true
And fed my vision’s fire
And saved my soul
Today.
