Warrior’s Song

1 God Thor

Warrior’s Song

A painful life is still life.
Gather flowers from the sages.
You’ll harvest with a sharp knife,

Use everything to fill life.
Purpose grows as yearning rages.
A painful life is still life.

When this is an uphill life
Your warrior engages!
Digs footholds with the sharp knife

You’ve fashioned at the mill. Life
Pays you in high wages.
A painful life is still life.

Your strength is in your will. Life
Won’t flourish locked in cages.
A painful life is still life
You’ll harvest with a sharp knife.

— Donna Falcone
