Be Wise Warrior

I ask myself ‘Where am I?’ 
My soul answers not, but gives a sigh
Looking at me, confused and lost
Was my old self I loved the most
Looking at me, with tears in eyes 
Says my mind as high it flies 
Down it gazed at the burning self 
At the rays striking its every shelf
” Your heart so pure as that of a child 
Has been hit with pessimism 
As youth passed by and made you hide
Your innocence and optimism
You have a lot, they may not 
Have this simple, loving self 
Within you it dwells don’t take it out 
Let it fight and gain triumph
Where have you gone I want you back 
Don’t leave me here, and walk this track
Where have you gone, my warrior?
Hold your sword and fight the black 
Forces of time shoved your past 
Deep down the dreadful sea 
Will you let them take the rest 
Of the person you used to be?
They may have won the battle 
But you have won the war 
When faith craves to meddle
Failure will knock their door
They may seem powerful
And thus reach your city 
But never will they handle
The wisdom of your country
When needed,
Have mercy, offer a bite
Goodness is not weakness
But don’t go far
Keep your might
That’s the person
You truly are
Know one thing and don’t forget
A day will pass and you will starve
So have faith and don’t expect
Of them a tiny little bite
They’ll turn their backs and just ignore
You’ll get hurt more and more
As u hear their words so sore
That you betray your inner core
Perceiving goodness as weakness
Just as they made you believe
Have faith and consume nonsense
Hold your sword and just leave
Keep them wondering
Keep them envying
Let them remember
Their own hunger
How the child deep down their minds
Looked at his toy breaking down
Right in front of his bare eyes
He wept and begged for his crown
Make them remember
When they needed a hand
They saw you there
You made them stand
Though to you, they were unfair
Come back later
Let them taste bitterness
Let them weep and cower
And heal them with forgiveness
One coming from ultimate power
That’s how it deceives us
The unfairness of life
By sending forces of misery, of loss
To give in and throw our knives

So Be wise warrior and hold your sword
Be wise warrior and fight the world”
