African American Poetry (1870-1926): A Digital Anthology

Georgia Douglas Johnson, "Armageddon" (1925)

In the silence and the dark
I fought with dragons;
I was battered, beaten, sore,

But rose again.
On my knees I fought still rising,
Dull with pain!

In the dark I fought with dragons--
Foolish tears! Cease your flowing!
Can't you see the dawn appears?
