Warrior's Speech of Courage
Libraries: Poetry and Song Lyrics
Published on / 1 Chapter(s) / 0 Review(s)
This is one of three poems I wrote that goes with my series, "The Half Moon Personified". It's in Caroline's POV.
My enemies surround me,
On every side they circle me.
Yet in this danger, I show nothing
But the cold readiness to fight.
Some would call it gruesome,
Others call it loathsome,
But I do it for my honor,
And for you, my friends and people.
I battle, yes, for pride,
You can see my ugly side,
But I battle for a deeper cause:
You, my friends and rivals.
I'll show you what I'm worth,
Yes, prove what I am worth,
I'll show you all that I can be
As free as the tiny wren.
So stand back away right now,
To my wrath, please do not bow,
Just please stand back a ways,
I do not wish to harm you.
