The Battle for Progress

by Brianna G. Harte

You can’t always improve

but this makes it more special to.

Learning what had gone wrong

is half the battle.

To make progress, you keep your shield up

with the weapon in hand.

Coming home, carried on the shields of warriors,

can touch your soul to bring about relief.

But do not feel distraught

if this does not happen every time

you step on the field.

A heavy heart weighs down.

Progress is an uncertainty

even more than before.

A certain power exists

in having a lifted heart.

If you can bring yourself

to find one,

don’t lose it

even when faced with failure.
