A Good Thing

There will be times when it feels

like standing up for what is right

means losing all you have left.

In those moments, when your back

is exposed and the blush

of your lips is flush with the bricks,

a cold shiver creeping

down your ramrod spine

is nothing more

than the last gasp of defeat

from the shadows taking their leave.

And I hope you know a good thing

when you feel it.
