Modern warrior

I am a modern day warrior.
My mind is my sword.
My words are my shield.
I do not battle on fields of strife.
My battlefield is that of ignorance and oppression.
I do not fight on display in coliseums.
My battles are that of discussion and reason.
I will never fight for king and country.
My only master is the truth of knowledge.
The battles I fight do not end in victory or defeat.
My truth is not so black and white.
I do not reside in a fortress.
I only exist only as ink, sound and code.
My fight is not for fame, gold or jewels.
The only reward I seek is validation.
I do not fight evil or injustice.
My only fight is for the truth of the world.
I am a modern day warrior.
When I am slain in battle,
I may fade from memory but my achievements will live on for eternity.
