#NaPoWriMo-Day 20-Another Skirmish

I fight 
the good fight

At least
I tell myself that

I fall down
and get up 

Fall down
get up 

I stumble
more often
than I care to admit

I win most of
the arguments
with myself
these days

Other days
I'm just not up
for another skirmish 

The war
rages on 

Each day
I tell myself that
'today I will do better' 

And sometimes
it's true
