Even Warriors Need Guardians - Poem by Anita Atina

When the burden gets torturous,

And our hearts scream for relief

We are sent guardians in disguise

To share in our grief


The universe moves in mysterious ways

Manifesting guardians

Sometimes in you and at others,

In me, everyday


Quietly reassuring

Our desperate plea is heard

Do not despair, draw solace in the knowing

You not alone


Our world won’t change overnight

There is much to do

For the burden you bear

Is for me to share


So leave your burdens, in my safekeeping

Gather soul energy, as you rest

For the world needs brave warriors

To take forward the quest
