A warrior spirit.

The Warrior Within

It is too easy to hear the word 'warrior' and associate it with aggression.

I am not aggressive - I remain fearless of everything other than my own coward weaknesses that I am blind to.

A warrior attacks you may say, ready for war.

I merely protect and defend. May there be a need for me to attack to provide security to those who have my word to them; then so be it.

Warriors are selfish; fickle.

No, A warrior must always put others first and speak from the heart so the actions follow suit.

My warrior mentality means that I am passionate to protect until my last drop has been shed.

I expect the power challenges of life.

I am ready to kick and bounce back upon awakening as I proceed through the challenge.

My pain makes me stronger for I have endured a challenge gaining my scars as I learn to grow.

To be a warrior indicates self-discipline and self-motivation.

So when I howl out, I howl to awaken the warrior...

But my strength comes with a price for me.

When raged it brings the wrath of inferno and I remain blind to anything other than my targets to neutralize.

So forgive me, I do hear your pleas as you attempt to stop me.

I understand you do not desire to see me hurt.

Try not to block the path, I may not see you as I charge forth.

Know I will return to you.

I know I shall require your healing.

Your gentle hands upon my wounds.

Your words of pride and praise in my ear.

When duty is complete I shall return.

Please my ray of light;

Allow me to fall to my knees before you.

Lay upon your lap as I recharge.

Gaze into your eyes and be reminded of why I am strong.

vane 3071: This book taught me so much and I even began to think, no wait know, it's important that people of all ages learn more about it. I may only be 14 but all we've always been told is that there the "special kids" that they have "issues", basically that they weren't normal. If we were to associate wi...

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

The Band: The only thing is that it's missing a bit of character development towards the beginning. I feel like Alandra needed to grow a bit more as a person. Also I thought there should have been more development in Reed and Alandra's bond. (As student and master, of course). Other than that this story wa...

Alexandra Tapper: I am going to be 100% honest. I have read thousands and thousands of books on all sorts of websites and apps, and never have I ever read a book that was this good. This is honestly the best book that I have ever read. Everything is put together so perfectly, it is like the perfect book.

Abigail Bezuidenhout: Love it😋😍
