People are fighting

Fighting for life

Fighting about

when it begins

who gets to decide

The fate of the unborn life

People are fighting

Fighting for their life

Fighting to breathe because of a disease

While others

Are fighting for the strength to go another day despite overwhelming despair

And others still

fight the odds and obstacles to bring new life into the world

People are fighting

Fighting to sustain life of those in their charge

Fighting with medication, ventilation

and all the tools and knowledge we can employ


For life

To begin

To stay

To end

To never have existed

What are we really fight for?

Who are we really fighting for?

I thought it was for you

Maybe it was for me

When is it time to fight

When is time to just be





What are we fighting for?
