Enemy At The Gate

Castle_siege

An enemy lurks and waits, pacing outside my gates
His battle plan is to destroy, but he offers up a ploy
Let’s sign a treaty, a pact, his objective is to distract
Call to battle, sound thee alarm, can’t allow to harm

To conquer this and succeed, strength’s what I need
Hold my ground, my sword, weakness I can’t afford
Who knows how long he’ll tarry, my great adversary
Blackness in his big hand, attempts to take my land

I must not give in but push back, courage can’t lack
If he was allowed to succeed, plundering with greed
Mind and body would be a loss, destined to be chaos
Depression is my opponent, must overcome, own it©
