A Moment in the mind,memory and thoughts of a worn out warrior


While I was away…….. I was looking for you.


I have saved a life or two.


I have seen the worst and best in my fellow man.


I have cried, despaired, given up, fallen.


I have succeeded, conquered, risen.


I have loved, hated, and learned to love again.


I have been deceived, dismissed, disregarded, taken advantage of.


I have been emulated, looked up to, my presence sought for.


I have made wrong turns, ran out of gas, broken down.


I have found shortcuts, better ways, other possibilities.


I have destroyed evil, dismantled chaos, eviscerated enemies of the innocent.


I have carried burdens, hidden skeletons, dismissed questionable decisions.


I have found God, lost God, prayed to God and cursed God.


I have traveled where there are no roads, paths or directions.


While I was away I realized I was and always have been looking for you.

I loved that last line, and when I read it, it was like everything was building up to it. I liked how whilst on their journey there was both bad and good.
