I continue to toil

So that no enemy of mine

Lays before me

With a swing of my soul

I have removed

Almost all from my path

But there is one

Who I cannot defeat

No matter how hard I try

He laughs at my accomplishments

At my failures

For they are all dust in his eyes

And he knows all my secrets

All my fears and hopes

For he is me

So I swing, and I plead

But he remains

My enemy.
