engraved in stone

"Zulu warrior"
Image via Wikipedia

i’ve fought beasts
sailed ships in the midst of storms
fought warriors left and right
i’ve earned my victories
with the valor of my might.

i’ve rescued damsels in distress
saved men much or less
led armies and won battles
my scars show
these hard won tussles.

but strong a warrior that i am,
mere mortal to the bouts i have,
for inside,
i am as weak as anybody else,
inside,
i know the toils,
will never end,
for when i am alone,
my pains are there,
engraved in stone.
