this is my battle

i did not bring this upon myself.
but if we're going to be technical about it
then, maybe, i did--
by both commission
and omission.

this is my battle.

truce has been used up.
there's no delaying the inevitable.
the lions and the dragons
have been released.
retreating is no longer an option.
it never was.

this is my battle.

i must fight it alone--
without an ally,
without any weapon,
without anything.

this is my battle.

i may not win.
but nobody will leave this arena unscathed.
