Warrior Poem

A Warriors Creed

I have no parents: I make the heavens and earth my parents.
I have no home: I make, awareness my home.
I have no life or death: I make the tides of breathing my life and death.
I have no divine power: I make honesty my divine power.
I have no magic secrets: I make character my magic secret.

I have nobody: I make endurance my body.
I have no eyes: I make the flash of lightning my eyes.
I have no ears: I make sensibility to my ears.
I have no limbs: I make promptness my limbs.

I have no strategy: I make unshadowed by thought my strategy.
I have no designs: I make seizing opportunity by the forelock my design.
I have no miracles: I make right action my miracles.
I have no principles: I make adaptability to all circumstances my principles.

I have no tactics: I make emptiness and fullness my tactics.
I have no talents: I make ready wit my talent.
I have no friends: I make my mind my friend.
I have no enemy: I make carelessness my enemy.

I have no armour: I make benevolence and righteousness my armour.
I have no castle:  I make immovable-mind my castle.
I have no sword: I make the absence of self my sword.
