A Message to All Non-Warriors

When will you stop being scared
Of what the others think?
When will you stop looking left
To right and shyly shrink?

When will you stop nervously
Chuckling when you see
Another person with no fear
Be courageous and free?

When will you stop trying to
Avoid embarrassment?
When will you stop seeking their
Approval and consent?

When will you look in the mirror
And feel so ashamed
That your true courage and strength
Are still not fully claimed?

When will you feel disgusted
That you’ve taken for granted
Your opportunity to make
Your true legacy planted?

When will you admit that you’ve
Allowed them to make you
A slave whenever they frustrate
Anger, and upset you?

When will you open your eyes
And see that life is hard?
With challenges and obstacles
And tragedy it’s marred

When will you man up and be
A warrior who faces
All these challenges head on
And with passion embraces

When will you stop hiding and
Stop whining and crying?
When will you stop seeking ease
And on comfort relying?

When will you awake and add
Your courage to our ranks?
When will you stand beside us
And lengthen our phalanx?

    This is so good.. We should stop thinking what others think… And do right by ourselves…

    So often I hear friends lament their lot in life, the things that make them unhappy. But they are oh so unwilling to take the difficult steps to make the necessary changes. Some choices are hard, heart-wrenching and difficult but vitally important.

    Seeking always ease and comfort starves the soul. Joining the phalanx of spiritual, moral, ethical warriors feeds us for the ultimate journey to Paradise.

    Wonderful, beautiful. Yes, we should all have the courage to follow what is right, not what is the most popular.
