No More Dragons
13 November, 2017
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)
My warriors heart has grown tender with time.
No more can I partake in the battles of others
fighting off their demons where I see none.
I feel the pain too deeply seeded in my own scars
Pains of rejection of loss of alone-ness & abandon
I can no longer spend my life afraid to speak
Silencing my words, thoughts and actions
guarding that any move may awaken the demons
that I may do something that could stir the flames
My fight is gone, I am tired of the battles of life
of the non-understandings of the darkness in others
I feel it too deeply, too personally, too much
My warrior blood has thinned and my body forlorn
The dragon slaying days are over. I am weary now
I lay down my sword... I will rest now... I am done.
