"Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who care about you and forget about those who don't."

Every soldier of life
Fighting that fight
Against their limitations
Each enemy unique
Many face one
Most face more
Some duel with depression
Some struggle with the past
Some battle a sickness
Some brawl their self-doubts
There are those who win
Triumphant with strength
There are those who lose
Give in to weakness
Every soldier of life
Can win that fight

this is really creative and neat -i love the idea- but the lines didnt seem to flow very well.

i love how you started it with saying that every soldier can fight the fight, but then end it by saying that every soldier can win the fight. it was a very creative way of getting your point across.

you can rate/comment on some of my work, too if you'd like. great job on this! keep writing!(:
