Matches end in eye blinks
Or go on and on

Good And Bad

Contemplating bad breaks and how they’re made…

   Good And Bad

Advantage drivel
Each size and weight good and bad
At higher levels

And conditions same
For both sides of the battle
So who gets the blame

Unless you can choose
To change the rules or the field
Deciding who’ll lose

   Digging Deep

Youth will find its way
Lessons of life digging deep
Sometimes in one day

Weapons high they charge
In eye blinks samurai strike
Living fast and large

Anticipating watching my friend’s son battling at kendo…

Been Pushed

Contemplating life’s struggle…

   Been Pushed

‘Til whatever lengths
A man has been pushed by fate
Unknown are his strengths

Duty’s but a word
But one that warrior’s live by
The fable I’ve heard

Stepping Up

Contemplating the struggles of life…

   Stepping Up

Only just begun
Babes toddle. Men Struggle on
Son turned twenty one

Come into his own
Stepping up to toe the line
I see that he’s grown

Life is good…

Every Day

Inspired by a son grown…

   Every Day

Waking every day
Proving himself every day
Yes he’s found his way
