A Warrior’s Stance

For there is honor in a good death especially the daily death of everyday living.

 A warrior
 knows her place
 when the battle 
 is lost before
 it has begun.
  
 But she fights on daily
 despite the causalities
 despite the cries
 the innocence lost
 the blood and sweat of struggles
 and the soul’s costs.
  
 For there is 
 honor in a good death
 especially 
 the daily death
 of everyday living.
