A Warrior Born

With the heart of a lion
and the soul of a poet,
a warrior is born many things.

Muscle and bone,
fiber and sinew -
Blood and sweat,
focus and control -
A moment of conflict
and a test of wills,
these are the heart of a warrior's soul.

Living in the instant,
no time for decision -
only for action.
A moment's opening -
a fist's connection.
Block, kick, and move -
no indecision -
the outcome decided in the heart -
the heart of a warrior born.
