Poem: Warrior

Life is hard when you look back at it

And don’t know how to look forward to it

When the present isn’t where you want it to be.

 

Life is going to throw itself at you

Give you balls you might be able to dodge

Waves you might be able to break.

 

What matters is you keep moving forward

Keep your head held high

Even when it weighs itself

On your fragile shoulders.

 

Life is called life for a reason.

 

You meet the good with the bad

The raw with the empty

The light with the dark.

 

The dichotomy of the ebb and flow of life

Will continue to meet you

Push you.

 

And make you a warrior.
