The Modern Warrior

The Modern Warrior

by Chris Bangs

The social scar tissue of cancer,
and the progress of our diseases

The migration of thought
and the accuracy of mindfulness

The hidden weapons
and the atomic nature of our subconscious

The modern warrior of today sees these things in each of our faces
and reminds us where the battlefield lies.

The barriers
and the lines between

The modern warrior no longer kills for food or power
and has learned the art of healing.

Look around at the world today, and if your mind is up to speed and you can see clearly the dilemmas that we as humans have faced for millenniums.

Then you know,
There's a revolution happening
There's always been a revolution happening

Change, the only constant,
and here we are today,
changing and changing (and possibly going no where)

The modern warrior looks around and wonders how much longer will we believe in the lies,
The lies that have us going to war with others
and says the enemy is outside our selves

The modern warrior knows this is a lie,
and also knows that this lie has kept us from our own personal revolution

Keeping us trapped here,
life after life

Making the same mistakes over and over,
living and dying,
and not evolving

The modern warrior know that to win,
is to surrender
and real courage lies in peace

Vegan, Yogi, and yes, Warrior 2

Modern, from the latin word modo, meaning "just now"

The modern warrior knows that the only real battle is the battle for NOW,
and that to live in the now releases you from the chains of our past,
and the fate of our future.
