To Bed to Rest as Best Defense

I’m in over my head in this fight
swimming against the tides
nowhere to hide
one champion in whom to confide
no reason to yet feel satisfied

Rolling up my sleeves
eager to please
taking on the causes of humanity
built up over the decades
ready to engage my enemy
in fruitful exchange of thought
cutting worries down to edible size
transitioning to full maturity
seeking favor in the public eye
defending my title
‘Poetess Under Duress’
