A female warrior
In between battles,
Vulnerable in all the right ways yet protecting the vitals
Bowed before her Lord;
Firm grip on sword -
Weary perhaps but no where near defeated or giving up.
Lots of fight power still within;
Surrounded by a backdrop of green -
Growth, rejuvenation, new beginnings filled with promise;
Head might be bowed
But only in submission
In acknowledgement of her Lord, her source, her worth.
Wielding the Samurai's sword
She defies the odds.
Breaking the norm, she's you, she's me, she's US.
