Side by Side

Side by side

In this dark world

A battle we must fight.

Our brothers fight

To look away

To make wrong thoughts flee.

We sisters fight

To draw eyes to Christ, not us

To dress with modest grace.

Each side grateful to the other,

Though silent we oft remain–

Fighting our battles

Side by Side.

Carissa Mann, 2/16/11

I had this concept for poem a while ago, and this is the (refined) rough draft I came up with… what do you think? How could I make it better?
