Love Comes Easy

By M. Jay Mansfield

Of all the things a warrior does
This may be the hardest
Obsession adoration LUST
All of these come easy

To battle his foes
And be wary of traps
Compared to trust
All of these come easy

A constant threat of death
With devils at his door
His brothers blood
And his peoples call

He’ll face them all full breadth
His face alive and unabashed
Body well, battered or broken.
For him love is the scariest fall
