    A Warrior's Oath


    No...
    My life is not in vain
    Because I exist
    I dismiss
    all those who twist and
    try to bring me down
    All the while
    learning to coexist
    and resist
    the negative energy that
    constantly blows by me
    With the wind
    And YES, like all, I
    admit, I have sinned
    But I WILL win
    This constant battle with
    the devil

    No
    My life is not in vain
    Because I exist
    I am valued
    My presence matters
    and You will not shatter
    my undying soul
    Because I take control
    of my life
    Ingnoring the strife
    I go on about my day
    Going out of my way
    to turn all the grays
    into bright blues
    I strive to stay true
    to my values and roots
    I refuse to eat the
    forbidden fruit

    No
    My life is not in vain
    Because I exist
    Opinions and judgments
    from those of flesh will
    not tear me down
    I will not frown
    or allow myself to drown
    in sorrow
    I look towards tommorow
    and embrace every day as it were my last,
    never longing for the past
    I allow all the negativity to surpass

    No my life is not in vain
    Because I EXIST

    This was definitely a battle cry for life, valuing who you are despite it all. There was power in this poet.
