not so ready to fall

I have tasted victory
thick upon my lips
savoring its flavor
like love's first bliss
I have fallen to defeat
heavy on my bones
willing it away wearily
in darkness alone
I have faced adversity
back against the wall
eyes straight ahead
not so ready to fall
I have surrendered my soul
for the greater good's due
believing it best for all
nurturing my reasons as true
I have walked this path
dusty and worn countless times
I will not ever stop
not even when I see the signs...
