He almost had me
face first to the dirt
I had fallen
just like many times before
but this is the first time
I thought hard
about just staying down

the Sunseed inside me
took hold—and I stood
precisely at the tick of 9
this fight ain’t over yet…

  1. Matt, wonderful poem about the “fight”, loved that you linked it back to “Sunseed”. “I will plant the ‘sunseed’ as my mother did before”, what a great line! Wonderful writing as always, a true joy to read. Take good care.
