Defeat

With every blow my armor begins to crack

I fall to my knees due to a powerful blow to the back

The pain is unbearable, I can't take it anymore, I can't even strike back

My foe then stares me in my face

I want my foe to finish me off…Just hurry up and pick up the pace

My foes never finish what they start

This is reason why everything seems to be tearing me apart

A battle once started must be finished – not ignored, avoided, or walked away from

Any choice that is made to do otherwise is just plain dumb

But I guess this coward thinks avoiding an ending will make my wounds heal or not matter and we can resume our fight

NO! My foe is wrong – I refuse to resume as I have a new foe in my sight.
