Today’s prompt was a fill-in-the-blank title: Battle __(blank)__
Battle the Fear
Walk this way without shame.
Your head will touch the clouds.
Your eyes will shine with the glow
of the new-risen moon.
The Fear will track you
through the wastelands
like a wolf on a scent.
It will hunt you like a lion
across the wide fields.
Listen to the ticking of your heart
and the gentle whisper of breath
as it slides in and out of the bags of your lungs.
Blood and breath will be your companions.
Carry your bowl of stones and feathers
and do not look back.
Whistle in the darkness.
Sing your heart’s own melody.
the light at the center
of your being.
