Warrior, a Poem.

Photo by: Jonathan Maneri


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

The warrior

Without the battle

Strength without struggle

Is emerging

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.
