An Agent of Life

My names symbolize and mean victorious. I am a soldier of a higher power. I am one that is here on a direct mission: To defend the defenseless. I am a sword. The sword strikes those who attack the weak. So that the attackers feel the wrath given to me, And understand that I treat them as they treat others. So that the weak know, They are never alone in this fight. I am a shield. The shield defends and respects. It respects that all are human, I am wisdom. I step back and watch the skirmishes of life, I review them rationally, So that when I join a battle, I know, I am on the right side. There is a higher power. It inspires me to act. But It is kinder than I. It would forgive where I would strike back. But I will fight anyways, For it is my duty to fight other battles. Life is a fight, But I… I am a sword. I am a shield. I am wisdom. I am… Victory!
