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.

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).

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

WildFlower Fire: I have only read the first chapter and I LOVE the writing style. I am excited to meet the characters and want to find out more. Looking forward to the rest.

Deleted User: An unusual story, well worth reading. Good conversations, excellent prose, and keeps my interest, maybe because I was there, back in the day. You won't be able to pt this book down.

Ariel: First book from the Author I've read, and am extremely impressed and very much satisfied that this story was a short-story, yet, filled with great writing, fantastic characters, and all I'd like is more, please. Malice, she is my favorite!!

In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong. Being originally from Yorkshire myself the story resonates with me personally, but this is good writing. I look forward to com...
