Warrior of Spirit

entry picture

When you invest in yourself you're better able to be of service to others...

 

Cultivating patience

Mastering persistence

Strengthening of mind

Building up resistance

Turning rage

To courage

In the heat of

Pure devotion

Streaming forth

A life force

Greater than 

An ocean

Evaporating uncertainty

Continuing to flourish

All within his orbit

He certainly 

Will nourish

A warrior of spirit

Has one purpose

In mind

First empower himself

Then all who

He may find

Ruth, I know Leon wasn't singing it for me but I could feel what was left of his voice after traveling 10,000 miles down the wire under the sea. That is some feat! Maybe Leon if you could sing a bit louder next time, the signal might not be so feeble the time it gets to me...?

I did take your advice I did
Injected me with silly
I thought this silly investment would
Help me serve more willy

Willy-nilly ha ha....

Willy makes us happy
Nilly's opposite sad
This is such a silly rhyme
I'm such a silly boy, er lad

I hope my warrior spirit
To chuckle on a while
Has lifted all your spirits and
Put on your face a smile......
