Key word. Persevere. Fight. Keep going. Go against all odds. You get the picture.
But when I am left alone with my thoughts, I question it all. What was the point of difference between you and I? Which part of all this perseverance is mine, and which was yours? To fight means there’s a battle to endure. I had my battles. You fought my demons, but never could fight your own. And as much as I like to believe I was a warrior, I could never fight against you or your chosen allies.
We choose our allies. And now I am left with the ghost of an ally.
