I am a Martial Artist

“I am a martial artist”, I see through different eyes.
I see a bigger picture when others see gray skies.

Though many can’t conceive it, I stand… facing the wind.
My bravery not from fighting, but from my strength within.

“I am a martial artist”, I’ll walk the extra mile.
Not because I have to, but because it’s worth my while.

I know that I am different, when I stand on a crowded street.
I know the fullness of winning; I’ve tasted the cup of defeat.

“I am a martial artist”, they say I walk with ease.
Though trained for bodily harm, my intentions are for peace.

The world may come and go, but a different path I’ll choose,
A path I will not stray from, no matter win or lose.
