Arm Yourself

26 Aug

Arm Yourself

When you got up out of bed
Were you fully aware
That there may be some troubles
Ahead you’ll have to bare?

When you swung your legs to floor
Did you prepare yourself
By grabbing all the weapons that
You’ll need off of your shelf?

It’s true, we do not live in times
Of knights and swords and shields
But for modern warriors
The battle never yields

Gone are raiders, hordes and armies
That attack our towns
We are no longer ruled by
The ones who wear gold crowns

Still there are the challenges
That attack every day
And just like knights, we must be armed
Before we enter fray

The weapons that we need to fight
The battles going on
Are not axes or swords or spears
Or any kind of brawn

Patience is the weapon that
We should all reach for first
It will defend effectively
Against all of life’s worst

Understanding is another
Weapon we should take
Without it, we may soon find that
More squabbles we will make

A peaceful heart will serve us well
Whenever someone thinks
That it’s an opportune time
To fight after some drinks

And finally, equip yourself
With the mentality
Of a warrior who doesn’t
Cower and then flee

A warrior does not turn tail
A warrior stands fast
A warrior endures the storm
Whenever they’re harassed

Traffic, weather, imbeciles
Without a lick of sense
Morons who get on our nerves
And make us feel so tense

If we do not arm the tools
To parry their attacks
Metaphorically speaking
We’ll end up on our backs

But if we woke and realized
A battle was ahead
If we armed ourselves right after
We got out of bed

The challenges we’ll face won’t have
An easy time upsetting
The bigger weapons you equip
The less you will be fretting

Arm yourselves!
