– versus –

There… is…

~

no ‘I’ in team…

no ‘I’ in we….

yet I read that sole-ful letter

when fighting me.

From dashing dawn…

’til earnest eve…

this is combat with a hard hat,

fighting for peace, but I

~

can’t… be…

the only fighter in the

day… time… or

pulling all-nighters. As I’m

writing out the verses, I

think of all the “versus” we all

fight… through… how

soulful the letters we all

write… too… when

fighting against “I” and

“I”.

  1. This is a fantastic piece of writing; in a way I found it supportive. that I am not the only I that drifts into internal conflict. Thanks for the comfort, there is no I in we. 🙂 Harlon (or maybe it should be there is an I somewhere in weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!)
