Author Ariana R. Cherry – Fallen and Risen Warrior

The times had its toll,

The price had been paid.

The warrior entered in,

fought with a brittle heart,

but then exited

with a fearful grace….

She walked along a rocky road

under a bright glowing moon

and her long hair flowed lightly

as it danced in the cool breeze.

The warrior felt her way through a lonely darkness

With her head held high and tear-stained eyes.

She stayed focused, even though, her favorite star had burnt out. She marched on.

There were more steps to be trod,

As each one was lit up from the glow of the high crescent moon. Twas a dark and rocky path the warrior traveled

In the bleak autumn evening, Faint lights flickered as she passed through isolated and desolate streets.

The warrior was determined to create a new onward moment. She marched on. A heart of scars built with uneven emotional lines, yet the warrior marched on.

Her soul, portrayed a strong-willed warrior.

She tries to live the life that has been destined.

A spirit attacked from the now and then. With her guard, she plans for the war of the future.

She marches on…

A warrior.

A warrior whose heart was attacked, whose soul was beaten, but has a spirit that is lifting…

She owns the night and marches on.

Who are you? Are you a brave knight? A warrior brandishing your sword, ready for battle. Are you a dreamer? Away with the fairies, losing count of fireflies whilst searching for Neverland. A goth? Who feels right at home with the monsters hiding under the bed, who loves to dance a dervish with the devil on the stroke of midnight. Or perhaps you are a dragon-slayer? Or a soul snatcher? Basking in the heat of an eternal flame. Or maybe you’re a witch? Hiding deep in the woods, practicing dark arts beneath the light of a full moon.
