The Warrior

The warriors tame the beasts in their past
so that the night’s hooves can no longer break the
jeweled vision in the heart.

The smart and the brave open every closet
in the future and evict all the mind’s ghosts
with the bad habit of vomiting up the past.

For a long time, the universe has been
germinating in his spine.

But only God has the talent;
the courage to stay
the past giants – The future anxieties.

The warrior wisely sits in a circle with other
Men, gathering strength to unmask himself,
then gives, like a great illuminated
planet on the earth.
