The Warriors Way
by Java Bomani

The warrior’s way, isn’t the only way.

He chooses the path of least resistance,

though some Martial Artists
choose to break the stone,
instead of taking the smooth way round.

The method represents the way,
the stone, the obstacle,
the target, rests behind it.

If the warrior scares his hands breaking the obstacle,
what will he have left for the target?

The warrior knows he can break the stone,
But he’d rather re-direct its power with suppleness,
then detonate on the mark
like nitro left in a baking sun.

He doesn’t question his power to destruct hardened substances,
if ever it becomes the target he’ll prove it.
