Challenge this opposition before you,
as the very Kingdom of Heaven is at your back.
What know you of the sight of victory,
should you not even attempt to seek it out?

Pull your head out and swallow the sand.
kick up the dust beneath the liquid layer,
swim against the tide, ascend and ride the wind,
Journey only forward, beyond the grasp of defeat.

Take us beyond the firefight,
to the brittle outskirts,
upon the horizon,
where lies our origin.

Within memory is our future,
where made easy
is the heavier weight of the burden.
Plant the seeds for the new battlefield.

Make it our own, by conquer, by incline.
Push forward through the storm,
the floods that make the seed grow,
as there is no progression without conflict.
"Accept the challenges, so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory." General George S. Patton

I love the imagery, it greatly supports your inspiring message.
I find the interrogation at the end of the first stanza a bit strange when I read this out-loud.
The very last line of the poem is very real, like a slammed palm breaking a citadel of paper, why do matter-a-fact?

Retreat and surrender are not options!
