    Warrior's Pride

    Fear-

    Escalating,

    The trepidation in value,

    My heart beats,

    If but for now

    A moment away

    From impending doom.

    Darkness obscures

    The essence of night,

    Absence of light

    My eyes have grown accustomed

    To this oblivion.

    Visions-

    Hideous and violent,

    Rampant the rage

    Pouring forth from

    These open wounds;

    Slicing away,

    Tearing away

    Life’s spiritual quintessence.

    Need,

    Desire pulls forth

    One last stance of defiance

    Aggressive determination

    Can withstand oppression:

    My deeds will be remembered

    Within the pages of history

    As the seeds of victory.

    Honor,

    Forgiven in one precious moment,

    Decisions of ole

    That stains this soul.

    While I have lived

    Not always in honor,

    My time has been well spent.

    The paths before

    Have not lessened my stride

    No matter the obstacles

    Faced along the way.

    I found that I could

    Always preserver

    And defeat any peril

    That I had to face;

    Honor and valor

    My saving grace.

    Hell yes. That everyday battle. And the acceptance of the losses. The mind seems built to withstand and overcome such things. Unlocking that potential seems to be the mystery. Very refined display of the never ending potential of a warrior mind. Elegant and potent as always.

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
