The Warrior

When you come after me 
armed to the teeth
with all the weaponry
you possess,
I’ll be ready.
I train for that day
by feeling the pain
I was forced to suppress.
I’ll be shielded with vestments
weaved from my anger.
My strength I derive
from the love of those
who know me.
I will face you head on,
standing tall.
If I’m afraid,
I’ll be there anyway,
girded for your free-for-all.
Heed my call:
I won’t start your war
but I will end it.
And I will win it.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  4. Awesome inspiration and motivation. We need to feel like Warriors nowadays, brave and ready to face anything.
