When a boy meets a girl

and the world stops spinning and he hears his breath in his ears

and the color wheel seems to have greatly expanded

and he can hear with his eyes and taste with his ears,

is it alright to fight for her?

How is it that we fight for recognition?

That we fight for rights we will barely use

That we will fight for wages

and yet throw in the towel the moment we meet the rest-of-our-lives?

I guess the question is when is it acceptable to fight?

And what could be more fightworthy than love

and a living breathing being that can return it?
