BECOMING A MAN

Floating off alone with my self in its safe zone
Amused with carefree movement
My warrior left at the meadows edge wards off dangers
Soon a would be attacker is dropped with no real harm
Approaching, I examine what is a familiar memory
With itís Trojan horse behavior
And demon-esque intentions

I can barely stand
And tremble at the thought
Of being drained once more
But I rise as I remember
My accumulated strength
Coming into its own

With the knowledge to use it gently
I have no fear
Of lacking compassion
And I believe Iím learning love

Dan,

For whatever crazy reason your poem reminds me of images I have in my head from Excalibur, an amazing film of some years ago. Have you seen it? It pursues some of the same ideas you are talking about here.

Much love,
Larry
