Dogs of War Conquered
So great that you could overcome that which you thought you couldn’t, your internal dogs of war. While others raged on, you decided to watch their actions without heeding their shrill bark of words, and the truth became exposed. You had the wisdom to know when to walk away and you did so with head held high, using the most considerable dignity that could be summoned. Now, use your new found freedom, my friend, freedom to sit in that chair by your open window, and to drink your tea, and to hear silence. And lest you think I am not taking you seriously, I well know the price you paid to get here.
