Warriors of the Light

 

There are those great ones who are truly brave,

Fearless on the path to enlightenment;

These are the warriors,

Slayers of egoís imprisonment.

 

The battle they fight is not with guns,

But with discipline of mind;

They fight with demons that lurk about,

That keep us from being more kind.

 

It is hard to be good to oneself,

Even harder to care for another;

The warrior is on the battlefield,

Caring like a brother, sister, father or mother.

 

Anyone who is devoted

Who shines forth a brighter light;

Who use wisdom, insight and compassion,

Partake in the warriors fight.

 

Selfishness is the ultimate foe,

Who keeps the light closed and locked;

Warriors break down these barriers,

That ego use to block.

 

When the light of the heart is open,

Warriors call forth their help and protection;

Warriors are the boddhisattvas,

Prism of the lightís intention.

 

Warriors are dedicated to fellowship,

Confident, clear and strong;

Genuinely lighting the way,

To were we all belong.
