Get Out Of My Way

“Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.” ~General George S. Patton

Get Out Of My Way

Much like most of my poems
This write is strictly aimed
At warriors who have “made it”
Who refuse to be tamed

Who don’t complain or stress or whine
Who’ve learned to let it go
This message is not for cowards
Who still succumb to woe

The words I’ll focus on today
Are from General George
Patton, a great warrior
Who acted as the forge

For many other warriors
George had three simple rules
Lead, follow or clear a path
He had no time for fools

It’s up to you to discern if
There is a trace of hope
Within someone to overcome
All that for which they mope

Those who you believe have that
Potential can be lead
And maybe if you’re lucky
You will come across instead

Someone who’s a warrior
Who resonates resolve
Follow them for they will teach
And help you to evolve

But then there are the snivellers
The weaklings, the inept
The ones who cry when things go wrong
The ones who won’t accept

The ones who complain, “It’s not fair!”
The one’s without a spark
The ones who won’t get off their ass
Instead, they’d rather bark

Here’s what separates the true
Warrior from the herd
The warrior does recognize
When someone won’t be stirred

The warrior can see quite well
When it will take an act
Of God, a tragedy, great loss
In order to extract

The inner power and potential
That the world denies
That you already have and claims
Comes not from “in” but “skies”

To follow those who say “I can’t!”
Is an act of a fool
And quitters have no desire
To attend “Warrior School”

And so as George said, there is only
One option that’s left
Over-sensitive weaklings
Will cry that it’s bereft

Of tact, of understanding and
Of empathy and love
Just remember, “People lie”
As you give them a shove

And tell them, “Get out of my way”
Because all that they’ll do
Is lead to weakness or they’ll doubt
Everything you hold true

Their selfish, ego-controlled minds
Can’t grasp the concept, “Serve”
Their “comfort addict” attitude
Will always lack your nerve

Their need to argue and be “right”
Will only turn your guts
Their blindness to their own control
Will quickly drive you nuts

Do not slow your stride or stop
Accept that there will be
Many who cannot help you
Or be helped to be free

They are content to be victims
And your mission is not
To try to free them from ego
Which has left them distraught

Your mission is to learn and follow
Or lead with your sword
And all the ones who say “I can’t!”
Will simply be ignored

    Dear Miro, your words reflect the wisdom of a true warrior.. We can all play the victim.. most of us have during our lives at some point, I know I have.. The key to understanding is to stand firm, overcoming the woe-is-me, and taking ourselves by the shoulders, learning to say NO, and neither following or asking others to follow, but daring to stand up for what is deep within our core… We can only be free when we free ourselves from our ego ..
    I am always delighted to read your poems Miro… you’re so refreshing … and are not afraid to stand up as a Warrior and wield your sword of truth! 🙂

    Namaste.. Sue

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
