Battle For Keeps

Photo by Julia Larson on


Bloody knuckles

Pushing back tears

Clinching teeth

Balled up fist

Greased up face

Cornrows to the back

Passionate eyes

Steady gaze

Eager, light, prancing feet

A song in your heart

Defeat far from your mind

Time burns away

Minutes turn into seconds

Low grunts from aching ribs

And sore abs

Let flesh contact flesh

In this battle of giants

Pull out your slingshot

Grab your pebble

And aim for the head

In this game of life

We’re playing for keeps

Love always, Esha ❤
