The Sharpening Stone

A mentor is like
The sharpening stone that
Strips the rust, useless
Revealing the edge of
The sword.

Thank you.

No, I Will Not

No, I will not
Lay down to bleed and die
Nor will I go off
Gently into the night

I know I am but human
So perfectly flawed
Shot down easily, a
Casualty of life’s war

Yet, I’d like to think
My beliefs are good
My falls forgiven
My passions true

So I’ll run the race
On stony paths awry
That when I arrive
I will see the light.
