S & S

Oh brave knight,
I honor your shield and sword,
Even if it occasionally cuts,
Because it also protects,
And pricks
Tiny holes in the linked chain
Of my vain pride.
And armor can bend.
The breastplate hides a fragile heart.
That too can mend.
This battle-hardened warrior princess
Also knows how to kick-start
The healing process.
I am no damsel in distress,
But I reluctantly admit under duress,
I need a friend
Who can help me send
Fear and judgment packing,
So, my dearest soul friend,
Will you honor your vows?
And help me in a special way that only allows
For real-world practice,
To ready this evolving shamaness
For my true destiny?
