By Michael W. Raley
How long will you allow yourself to be nagged by doubt?
How long can you tolerate the sound of a thousand silent shouts?
Some days it is hard to understand
How all of this is part of a great cosmic plan.
Yet, the Warrior in me will arise,
Even if the attack catches me by surprise.
My ground I will not relinquish,
Nor will I stop until this enemy is vanquished.
Warrior, pull the sword out of its sheathe
And run like lighting is in your feet.
Arise, Warrior! Arise!
This is not the time to fall away or compromise.
Do not concede; do not fall victim to the petty strife,
Because this battle is the essence of your life.
