The Warrior

Standing

Facing definitive

Hurt

And worse

The warrior chooses

To keep their gaze fixed

To weep openly for the loss

Be it theirs or their neighbors

Allowing heartbreak fresh and clean

To advise and guide their path

Swearing never to yield

Nor assuage oaths

But to protect

And

Widen eyes

Love so openly

Accept fear of pain

Relinquish righteousness

And teach others

That everyone 

Can be

A warrior
