YOUR WARRIOR

Did they say you won’t see tomorrow
Claiming your life would be drenched in sorrow
Tell them your warrior is drawing near

Did they say you’ll get in trouble
And all your worries would incessantly double
Tell them they are the ones who should fear

Who is he that makes your day frightening
Tell me. I shall strike him like lightning

Fear not, I shall bruise his bragging head
He would wish he were long dead
Than face the wrath I’ve chosen to bring

They shall all flee at the blast of my gun
My voice would shake them till they run
An unending dirge they would sadly sing

So my dear, walk with pride wherever you go
Stay calm as ever, for your warrior tells you so

  1. “Your warrior” is an epitome of creativity depicting courage and sacrifice one should do for love and I so love the way the poet dropped his words. But I believe if a question Mark was added to each of those ‘question-like lines’ in the first three stanzas, it would have better brought out the impacts of a rhetorical question:
    “Did they say you won’t see tomorrow
    Claiming your life would be drenched in
    sorrow?
    …”

    ” Did they say you’ll get in trouble
    And all your worries would incessantly double?
    …”

    ” Who is he that makes your day frightening?
    …”.
    Just my observation. Thanks.

      Valid observation…nice…but some poets prefer to do away with punctuations
