The Sword

Rating: 4.0


I am the sword,
The fighting tool of man.
I cut like talons,
I tear like claws,
I strike like fangs.

I am the sword.
I am destroyer, I am protector.
I am weapon, I am shield.
I am the deliverer of,
And the deliverer from death.

I am the sword,
Swift, clean, final.
Double edged, deadly sharp.
Be I word, action or steel,
I am the sword.

It is interesting to note that 'sword' has also come to mean, 'truth', 'strength' and having a solid moral compass. When read from those viewpoints, the depth of the meaning becomes so much more.

Loved hearing the sword describe his own qualities. Many people through history have become too well acquainted with the sword; and I'm sure many of them could attest to the truth here.
