Behind this shadow I am a warrior
Unafraid of my strength
Yet the darkness protects me from this truth
I am terrified to begin this journey
It is cool and comfortable
In the shade of night
I can easily hide my brilliance, but
my path to transformation is lined with fire
And the spark does not survive under this damp cloak
I wait, and I breathe
Without the battle
Strength without struggle
The night is ending
The sun rises over the horizon
It is time to ignite my path.
“Warrior” is the first in a series of poems dedicated to
and written in the name of the practice of yoga.
