Warrior's Soul

Her warrior’s soul has seen A hundred wars Lost in stalemate with no resolution. A hundred lies Shroud the truth and honour persecution. . Her warrior’s soul has heard So many torments Suffered by the weak, with hope extracted. So many children Cry in hunger while the world’s distracted, Her warrior soul has fought A thousand foes Who fail to honour truth or pay the price. A thousand causes Raised to stem the flow of sacrifice Her warrior’s soul has walked Too many miles She seeks the shadowed mist to pass the helm. Too many lives The spirits call her to the blessed realm. Her warrior’s soul will hold A single star To guide her to the path that calls her fate. A single wish To see this world reborn and free of hate.

Once there is universal acceptance, once we can look at a person and see a person, not color, status, religious belief, etc., Once we can just accept one another as we are, this can be reality. Wonderful write. God Bless. Vince
