A warrior spirit.

The Warrior Within

It is too easy to hear the word 'warrior' and associate it with aggression.

I am not aggressive - I remain fearless of everything other than my own coward weaknesses that I am blind to.

A warrior attacks you may say, ready for war.

I merely protect and defend. May there be a need for me to attack to provide security to those who have my word to them; then so be it.

Warriors are selfish; fickle.

No, A warrior must always put others first and speak from the heart so the actions follow suit.

My warrior mentality means that I am passionate to protect until my last drop has been shed.

I expect the power challenges of life.

I am ready to kick and bounce back upon awakening as I proceed through the challenge.

My pain makes me stronger for I have endured a challenge gaining my scars as I learn to grow.

To be a warrior indicates self-discipline and self-motivation.

So when I howl out, I howl to awaken the warrior...

But my strength comes with a price for me.

When raged it brings the wrath of inferno and I remain blind to anything other than my targets to neutralize.

So forgive me, I do hear your pleas as you attempt to stop me.

I understand you do not desire to see me hurt.

Try not to block the path, I may not see you as I charge forth.

Know I will return to you.

I know I shall require your healing.

Your gentle hands upon my wounds.

Your words of pride and praise in my ear.

When duty is complete I shall return.

Please my ray of light;

Allow me to fall to my knees before you.

Lay upon your lap as I recharge.

Gaze into your eyes and be reminded of why I am strong.
