Journey

Delta looked out on the horizon and saw something…

a warrior walked slowly,
head down
sword dragging behind him
to others
he appeared
defeated
but his pace was only slow
because he’d traveled for a long time
and his head down
because sometimes,
he liked to see where his steps were leading
the sword was not aloft for there was no need to use it at this time
that’s the thing with life
the many battles he’d won, lost or otherwise
were never viewed from his perspective by others
couldn’t be understood by them
so while to the others
it looked as though he failed
he had fallen and would continue
he knew
that so long as he stood back up
after each fall, each loss
so long as he did not stop
the greatness,
the simplicity of being,
would always travel with him
