Friction

I know a lot of people
believe in peace
and harmony.

I don’t.

I believe barriers
cause friction
which allows heat
to energize us
and reach within
ourselves

climb
over those barricades
and get where
we want to go,

with veins popping
sweat grinding away
our efforts to continue,

and some one
slips
nearby,

give them a hand
not to save
but out of respect
due a fellow warrior.
