THE ENDLESS BATTLE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: There is no hope, and yet I keep on fighting
Last Line: Something within me keeps me fighting on!
Subject(s): Courage; Valor; Bravery


There is no hope, and yet I keep on fighting.
There is no chance, and yet I fight the more.
Fate's holocaust is loosed against me, blighting
My dream of triumph that I held of yore;
Sick am I, sick unto the very core
Of heavy wrongs there is no way of righting.
Yea, I am weary of the battle roar
Beneath black skies no sun is ever lighting.
I see no gleam of victory alluring,
No chance of splendid booty or of gain;
If I endure I must go on enduring
And my reward for bearing pain—is pain;
Yet, though the hope, the thrill, the zest are gone,
Something within me keeps me fighting on!
