A Battle Rages

A battle rages internal.

Two fronts equally matched.

Dreams shoot fire dragons,

Their arsenal bright.

Present, drops anchors,

Heavy chains made of bills.

Which side will prevail?

The choice is yours.

For Trifecta; 33 words inspired by:

 “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

    Heavy chains made of bills indeed (fitting, right around tax time. eesh) Go fire dragon-shooting dreams, go

  8. Bills. Nasty things, they make me keep a job when I’d much rather be dreaming.

    To simply discuss dreams vs reality as a balncing act would have been more than enough but, to structure your poem so exactly equal and balanced added to the overall quality of your finished work. Very well-organized and executed.

    “Present, drops anchors, / Heavy chains made of bills.” This is a great phrase. Great job, Sandra!
