brave and strong,
fell to her knees
at the base of a mighty
Her body was torn and bleeding,
weary of battle and in
need of rest,
healing, and peace.
Without this she would perish,
and her fierce blue eyes would fade to nothing.
Thankfully, at the base of this mighty mountain
lived a tribe of healers,
who picked up the warrior and carried her inside,
out of the wind, rain, and cold.
Seeing that her spirit fought for peace,
they watched over her,
tended her wounds,
and saved her life.
Now, a month has past,
and the warrior must return home
to put together the pieces of her war torn life,
to return to her family,
and to free them from the bondage of war.
But her journey is not yet finished,
as the warrior must again return
to the base of the mighty mountain;
at year's end,
to be reborn.
To be born free.
