The Wandering Warrior

The Wandering Warrior

Banked doubts rest
on the shores of forgetfulness
as persistence of bravery
rises with the tides…

The warrior bid his time
seeking the path divine:
…diving into the heart of freedom
born of love
…seeking the kindred of mind
and heart…
        where peace dwells
        and joy swells

The wanderer in search
of truths
listens well within
the depths
of confusing seas
tossing to the 
waves that which
does hinder
the spirit…allowing 
the ebbs
of the tides
its cleansing chore
embracing life
with new 
awakenings

    The endless search inside ourselves to find an unknown answer. I think, might be the solemn truth, an endless mindless cancer. We raise our sword to fight so proud in hopes that we may conquer. Wonderful wandering Debra. :)
