The Battlefield in My Mind
Talia Lee '25
My lifetime I can control
So leave me be
Until I am free from this hatred.
Although it seems clear
I’d no longer like to feel this
Life can be love
It can be a flower blooming on a tree
It seems I am just understanding
What the sole purpose of this reckless world we live in
But how much longer can this last?
When will my mind surrender?
When will my mind recognize
Life can be more than war
It can be a chance to recognize
Our purpose and reason to be living
But just once
I’d like to no longer battle
The one thing that lives within me
The one entity that eludes me
My own mind
