Life Warrior

I am a life warrior;

Not the one who fights and encourages battles,
But who walks and continually let go of what isn't hers;

I walk under no banner,

Never will I feed war;

Kindness, compassion and softness are values I wear, and for what I stand strong;

On my skin, no mark had been left,
My battles were not of blood and sword;

No scars can be seen;

Love, welcoming and kindness are my shield,
My words, my moves: bearer of kindness;

Since a little girl, I am trained,
Judgments, criticisms I took;

Words, pointed against me,
Looks hardly aimed at me,

But always, I got up,

I am a life warrior,
Surrounded by those who fought like me;

Under our feet grow flowers,
And everything we do is to give and encourage life.
