strength

I'd won a million battles but never told anyone.

Was I supposed to wear my victories on my chest like a diplomat?

Then would the world see me as strong? 

Most people take pride in their ability to stand their ground.

But life had made me soft, not hard.

I was flexible while they were stiff.

They were foolish enough to stand tall against the ocean.

I knew how to flow with the tides.

They'd be washed away to another shore

While I swam to claim new land. 

They wanted to fight every war.

I just wanted to end them.
