    All soldiers can be warriors, but not all warriors are soldiers...light & life & love worth fighting for, dying for, but humanity has lost its way, lost in the dark refusing to see..that's what I feel in your words, and this among your other works is very compelling. I can't stop reading! -Lauryn

    Fight we must, won't see it on the news (cuz they're in bed with the crooks) Glass Steagall is up for re-enaction...separating commercial from investment banking (your deposits from the greedy hands of the Wall Street Casinos) FDR had it right! and once more we will be held hostage for bailout ransom! Most likely it won't pass...because the American people are blind! Jimbo

    Your poemk says quite a lot of different things. One that struck me was the isdea of a sacred forest, though it is far the main idea. The forest does needs to be held sacred and protected, or we will not have any forest left, like Scotland.

    T.E.R.R.I.F.I.C.!! "No longer do I want to be a soldier. There's a difference./My raised fist is not theirs to have./I will no longer raise my fist for them."!! One of your best! And my new FAV! Great work, Chris! Ruben.

    My favorite line is "I. Will. Not. Raise. My. Fist. For. Them" Period! I am thinking that it is not our hair, nor even our gender that creates the warrior. and in my own way I have always been a warrior, yet, I will not study war no more. Love this one, Chris, am putting it into my favs! Hugs, Catie :)

    I am absolutely floored...once again. Beautiful...You said the magic word: Kingfisher. I know the public comments are a bit awkward, but I don't really mind, because love is for everybody...But there is only one for my Love...Your hair will grow again: the hair of a peaceful warrior...

    This is another very powerful and vivid write from you, Chris. There's just so much to digest here, a lot of valid points that are worth digesting-that line about there being a difference between soldier & warrior sure seems loaded-- some of the lines that truly got to me were those that touched on "over-thinking". Ah I do that too much, and how I could relate to that! I really liked the conviction you have here, and I think that how you ended this was perfect.
