Decree of Honor


Sacred Fujiyama pointing like a natural arrow pointing toward the sun,

I don my yoroi, colored by my humility.

All of my imageless tattoos are visible; unfamiliar eyes like the blades of daggers deepening past gashes while opening fresh raw incisions at the same time.


However my quintessence is numb to the searing pain known as ignorance.

Instead the wounds are healed by the balms of compassion, wisdom generosity, and mindfulness.

I release my katana from its scabbard and point it toward those imginary eyes, causing them to dissapate.

I turn my chariot toward the rising sun.

And roll on..

Acceptance is this samurai's decree of honor.
