Struggle of the Mind

We all struggle, with our thoughts, our emotions.
It's a battle within ourselves.
How can one win a battle if their is only one player?
It becomes a never ending match.
Often times I wish I could shut off the noise for a while.
The noise in my head, the noise in my soul.
But the more I try to ignore my opponent,
the more it demands victory.
How does one control their mind
when there are so many pieces to the game?
If you had the choice, would you shut it all off,
or continue to attempt to win the battle?
