Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
In the silence and the dark
I fought with dragons:
I was battered, beaten, sore,
But rose again.
On my knees I fought, still rising,
Dull with pain!
In the dark I fought with dragons--
Foolish tears! Cease your flowing!
Can't you see the dawn appears?
Written by Georgia Douglas Johnson (1880-1966)
