Literary Warrior

Idea by Larry Smith, poem by Trina Williams-Emigh

I am a Literary Warrior
writing for causes
without cease
inequality and freedom
acceptance and understanding
war and peace

I am a Literary Warrior
prepared for battle
with my pen and pad

Strategically using verse as my strike
inhumanity the launch
Attacking you with metaphor as my camouflage
and simile my cover
Seizing you with words as the arrow
injustice the bow

This Literary Warrior
when in battle
even the strongest of foe
