White Flag

I am waving the white flag today

Abandoning the old life and former way

Abdication, acquiescence 

Capitulation, morphing essence

I’m giving way for change to come

Relenting years of martyrdom 

I submit to the needs of my heart

Renouncing intellect doesn’t mean I’m not smart

It means I understand that victory is 

Not fighting change

It is what it is

To win this war against myself

I surrender and ask for Divine help

I am tired from this long fight

So I wave the white flag and succumb tonight
