Warrior of Spirit

entry picture

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

ย 

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 thanย 

An ocean

Evaporating uncertainty

Continuing to flourish

All within his orbit

He certainlyย 

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...๐Ÿ˜Ž

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......
