It’s Fought From Within
By Yanna

Top of the food chain
Counting cooked rice grains
Shifting skirts and shirts
Digging pits in dirt
Attracting strangers to danger
Ousting suspect friends to defend
The fried food is in-coming
But the stress is surmounting
The desert is dry
The mountain is high
The valley is low
No nice place to go
Anxiety: stress
The real-life contest
It’s fought from within
It shadows the sins
It knows how to glow
When the charge runs low
