Poem: Surrender 


I surrender 

lay down among the fallen

my own weak and weary comrades 

Those who have marched

with me all along 

The fiercely fighting soldiers 

taking battles to the blood 

I look down on the hillside 

upon the fallen foe

and see such devastation 

discarded  in my moving through 

wondering what I did

It may just be sweeter

to lay it all down 

surrender to the flowing wind

that blows along the hard edged ridges

surrounding my peaceful 

mind

  1. This brings to mind the thought that sometimes surrender may be just the answer. I think there are different types and degrees of surrender. Sometimes when a battle has been fought true, brave and long, it’s ok to let go and rest. There will be another battle on the horizon soon enough…….
