All I Know how to do is Fight

Throws a left

I dodge

Life keeps swinging blows at me

Throws a jab

I duck

Uppercut

I fall flat

Knees weak

Mind strong

I barely stand back up

But I swing back

I blossomed as a bright flower

In the crack

Of the sidewalk

Life pulled my petals and leaves

I am drooping over

But I’m still a flower

I was as strong as a building

Then the wrecking ball of life

Destroyed me

Shattered me

But I started putting the pieces back together

I learned to fight back

I learned to replant

I learned to rebuild

I learned how to return

Now that is all I know how to do
