1. The Warrior


The Warrior
© 2019 Timothy Shewmake

Waking early morning light putting on the armor for the fight
The battle lies ahead, a raging war
I understand the risk I take of marching for a cause of hope and peace
Giving more than I can bare, I wonder when the limit’s finally reached
I draw my sword to fight once more

Marching forward courage shouts
Enemies are falling down around me, surround me
Even though it seems in vain as long as life still remains
I’ll conquer, to champion the cause, angels around me, I am a warrior

The doctors say there’s not much hope, nothing left to do but pray
The warrior stirs inside my soul I won’t simply lay down my sword
Get out of my way, I won’t give up today
