Poem: Battle Against Time

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Stand by You" by Rachel Platten


Hands intertwined, anxiously awaiting
each spoken word we hear,
challenging decision,
a battle against time.

Holding you tight
drying tears,
disappointing news,
our worst suspicion confirmed.

Helpful knowledge gained
diminishes fear
with this uphill battle,
sighs of relief.

Striking forces together,
tackling this complex maze,
imminent defeat,
no match for strong-willed determination.

"I Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty
