Poetry: Warrior Woman

Share this with your friends

Warrior Woman
Lay down your arms
Breathe deeply in
Let the thoughts
Go free into the valley
Running themselves tired.

Journey now
To the horizon
Where peace
Overcomes all battles
It is time to rest
It is time to recharge.

The herd runs
On its own
Sometimes turning
To face the sages
Most times
It will go blindly on.

When the vessel is empty
There is no fresh water
From which to drink
From which to share
Fill the vessel with time
Fill the vessel with rest.

Warrior Woman
Strong like rock formations
From before recorded time
There will always be
Battles to be fought
Hearts and heads to win.

Warrior Woman
Lay down your arms
Breathe deeply in
Let the thoughts
Go free into the valley
Running themselves tired.
