Peaceful Warrior

A Peaceful Warrior


...seems like a contradiction.

Peace and war

They don’t go together

Only existing as a juxtaposition.


But the two do reside

Side by side

Inhabit one body

To balance the other out,

As a humbling guide.


When war pushes, peace will pull

Two forces

Opposing in full.

Until one will pull too far


Forcing one to feel bizarre,


Anyone’s nightmare.

How do you turn the table?
