The Greatest Enemy

The Greatest Enemy

A Poem by Brigg Aries
"

be yourself

"
Life is the widest battlefield
where war is always on the wait
One will rise and the other will fall
and the same cycle goes again

I have fought many battles
encountered many enemies
I have been a conqueror
and have learned on my defeats

But there is this enemy that marked
The greatest of them all
He knew my thoughts and ways
and counters every attack i make

I never knew the identity of him
behind that very familiar armor
Then there was this day i wont forget
in that lonely dessert, his face revealed

i hit that metal covering his face
the gear broke and fell on the ground
Then our eyes met as we looked slowly
I cant believe the truth I've seen

He looks exactly as I do
I can see the same soul in his eyes
In that very moment I realized
My greatest enemy is exactly who am I.

You are right.
"He looks exactly as I do
I can see the same soul in his eyes
In that very moment I realized
My greatest enemy is exactly who am I."
The above lines. True for me and most people. We hold regret and won't forgive people we need. Powerful use of words and thoughts left the reader with something to think about. Thank you Brigg for sharing the amazing poetry.
