Warrior

Within you beats the heart of a warrior
Yet despite its relenting drumming you doubt yourself
Others have bruised your mind and soul
But life has kept your spirit intact
For it knows what you are made of
It brought you back to life with greatness in your soul

You are what poets meant when describing strength
Within you hides the living waters of truth
Neither your voice nor your will can be taken from you
Try as they might, they cannot destroy what is divine

I know you doubt yourself at times
Times when the world seems to have turned its back on you
When your knees feel weak and you fight the tears
Times when there is no one else to hear your cries
You feel alone but you are not

You have been chosen by life like other few
Those who dare to embrace all the facets of life
Although we are not always side by side 
We are connected by the glorious purpose of freedom
To be human is to be imperfectly divine
No masks
No pretenses
No hiding 
No shame 
No false sins
No games!

Within you lives voracious fierceness
Although at times afraid you keep going
Find pride in your fight 
Although alone at times, don't ever give up

The intensity of a warrior's passion is often misunderstood
Crazy and misfit they call you
Yet their world they owe to you

You are a philosopher and a sculptor
You dare question and shape life
You are the reason this world is worth living in
Don't ever doubt the purpose of your path

You are the teacher and the student
The astronomer and the guide
Within you lives peace but also a Samurai
You are sweet melody 
And vigor made force 
Your sword always ready to save lives
Your melody soothes misunderstood souls

You are a warrior forged in the painful fires of hell
A raging lion who has drank from the sacred springs of life
Fear not the illusion and delusion of your adversary
Hear not their sonnets which mock your pain
For you are unbreakable and cannot be conquered
For the winds of life protect your spirit and your soul

They think heroes are those who follow the rules
But you know better, for your eyes have seen hell
To face the devil you must learn his game
You know your power 
You know your strength
That is what makes you a beautifully dangerous man

I passionately believe one person can make a difference. I write from my own experiences and interests. It is my greatest hope that by writing about my own challenges, victories, hopes and learnings, others may feel inspired to believe more in their inner power and to fully embrace themselves!
