Searching for peace in a conflicted existence.

 I hate with a vengeance that rivals’ god’s wrath. I hate all those who oppress and subjugate the masses with Tyranny.  I push forward fighting the evil that sets upon this world, drowning it in its sour metallic taste. Trying to consume it, devour it, and bring it to its knees.  I fight on…

 

This hatred consumes me and pushes me to train as if preparing for conflict that will spread across the nations; to kill with a ruthlessness that shows no quarter or compassion; to push my body, mind and soul to its limits just before breaking, bending it to my will, honing to crush.  I fight on…

 

I honor my fellow soldiers, my fallen comrades, those who have shown courage and integrity in the face of great peril, the warriors who are respected through their actions without cause; without regard to their own safety; protecting the innocent.  I fight on…

 

I live as if it were my last days on this earth, forging ahead without accord. Searching the world over for knowledge; wisdom; this is what calms me and gives me perspective in an angry, ugly world.  I fight on…

 

I Love as if I were consumed by an unnatural fire decimating the planes; giving myself completely and opening my heart to the one I’ve found.  Doing all in my power to Protect her, never giving a thought as to how or what the consequences; as long as she is safe from the ugliness that sometimes stems forth without warning.  I fight on

 

With all in mind, it is love that grounds me the most, makes me whole; causes me to be just, to look for peace thru poetry and love, to take notice of such things as a mother’s love; to be the man that I am…  I fight on…

M.S.
