What did I accomplish today, when the world looked bleak and gray? I got up despite pain; instead of covering my head I faced the bitter world I dread to fight demons again.

Note-Generally, I lean toward writing free verse, but every now and then I stumble upon a poetic form that tweaks my interest and I decide to try it. Today, I found the Rime Couee, a French form, and this little poem is what came of it.
