Warrior Within –
He wanders deserted lands,
enduring trenches vast and deep;
tiresome, his travels,
and the restless nights of forgotten sleep.
each shackled step
as the beast’s unpredictable torment
attempts to render him inept.
But the warrior within
advances to the occasion;
he administers his own resuscitation.
Hijacking the enemy’s mission
while grasping his foundation,
he overthrows the monster,
ending its final devastation.
Dedicated to each of my sons, and all firefighters and military in their battle against fiery beasts, and enemies who wish to take them down. This is also a tribute to everyone- men and women- who suffers from PTSD, depression, debilitating anxiety, and painful flashbacks.
You each carry a warrior within;
thus, these internal and external wars,
you will surely win!
I waited patiently for the LORD. He turned to me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand. He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
