THE WARRIOR
by
©Richard J. Budig

I am a warrior.
I hold my hand to the flame
To remind me of the pain I inflict.
I slit my finger with my sword
To sense the swiftness of my action.
In a puff, I extinguish the flame
To sense the finality of what I do.
And in the curl of rising smoke,
I am reminded of something greater than I,
The Warrior.
