The Might to Fight

I cannot keep this incomplete
Or open wounds that never closed
I cannot steer a broken fleet
Adrift without its oars opposed

I cannot see what isn’t there
Or claim that which I never had
So how to let go this affair
That threatens to propel me mad

I must learn to let you go
You who elude me even now
I must set this anchor free
Without knowing exactly how

I must take time to redefine
What happiness holds in my mind
And feel it set safely in me
The might to fight my own confined
