I have a muse, someone who sparks my creativity
Her strength and grace always reminds of all that I can be
His “Never say die!” attitude has inspired countless rhymes
Her courage when all others ran invigored umpteen times
When I sit with my feather quill in hand and have no thoughts
To write, it takes just one thought of this muse, then I have lots
I’ve written hundreds of poems and feel I’ve only scratched
The surface of the wisdom that this muse of mine has hatched
So many writers whine about the “Writer’s Block” which halts
Their creativity but my muse blasts right though those vaults
In case you’re wondering, my muse is not some buxom blonde
Nor is it some tough athlete, my muse goes far beyond
A crush or hero worship of some someone who’s flesh and bone
My muse is a concept of “Warrior” who does not moan
Who walks into the fire when the normals turn and run
Who dares the reaper every time while others search for fun
The 1 in 100 who stands apart from all the rest
Who does not see things as problems, instead to them; a test
The Warrior, a concept that is not far out of reach
A muse that demands sacrifice from me so they can teach
Endless inspiration in exchange for all my fear
Endless faith in myself if I choose to not adhere
To the majority who whine, who cry, who all complain
Who live for shortcuts and are terrified of sweat and pain
I make these sacrifices gladly for my muse’s light
Fear for courage, doubt for faith and feebleness for might
