Untitled Free Verse Poem

Sometimes the greatest battles don’t happen with swords, fists, or other weapons

It happens in the mind

Invading thoughts occur without warning

Malevolent clocks running backwards and looped footage

Become scourges

There was no control to rewind everything to one’s wants

20/20 hindsight makes the slights into mountains

There needed to be no debilitation as it’s happened before

It had to start with resolve and telling the invaders to be expelled

All those times were uphill battles

    • Thank you so much, Bill! Yeah, I wanted to have some kind of wordplay with perfect vision and the year. Sure, I’ve rehashed the past in my mind even before 2020, but the atmosphere of this year indirectly caused some of those ruminations from time to time. Very good point about how rehashing the past in one’s mind can be like PTSD.
