Tried an True

ideals worth keeping are fought for

By HufflecupPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

the weakest ideals are never tested

the fire is a cold comfort

when you find rest deep in a cave

will your resolve hold when faced with cries of anguish

the darkness laments your peace

fearful men ask the stars to intervene

the fearless grab a torch and hunt the nights terrors

someone must sacrifice

ideals forged in blood and tears

become the laws of good men

we learn the truth

when we try and fail

what matters is who blinks first

when you go eye to eye with strife

peace is convenient

freedom is fought for

this is tried and true

I want nothing more than to dedicate my life to writing, so I figured I would start here to test the waters. I will be submitting stories to as many communities as possible.
