Warriors - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Horses and warriors
Shields and amour
Fighting for a cause
Avoiding as much loss

Shedding blood is a must
Battles must be fought and won on the battlefield
How many men will be killed?
For a country
For a nation
For self belief

Spears and shields
Tools of war
Making history
Alliance and victory

A treasured sword
Held by a courageous man
Known by his name as warrior
Failure is not an option
A countries pride is at stake

Bows and arrows
Fighting for a name
Decorated with strings of fame
A man must do what he must
Even if it is for a mediocre cause

Now wars are won and fought with guns
The true warriors are the thinkers and not the fighters
The true warrior is not the man who dies
But the one who stays alive
The one who can plan and strategise
Analyse and fantasies a vision which is bound to come true
