Fighting For My Life

In the night,
after the first sleep,
ruffians emerged
and challenged me to fight
for my life

the little boys
with tussled hair,
and broken teeth,

hell bent on taking
my will to live
so we locked in battle.

I fought hard
but they were tricky
coming in for the attack
at my ankles

their youth
gave them speed
but my desire
overcame their advantage

and in the morning,
though exhausted,
I was ready
to live
