For TLS...

Mother warrior

protecting your son and giving him

Everything a child could want

to prove that you didn't need

a man to take care of you.

Daughter warrior

fighting your parents in little ways

while still respecting their beliefs

to prove that you are

a deserving only child

Agape warrior

holding and adoring your friends

showing them every day how much you care to see that your heart is

still yearning for that closeness

Fierce warrior

Taking on the entire world

to prove that you can.

But here you don't have to.

Here you are cared for and safe.

You don't need to be a warrior.

Not for me.

You can just be my friend.
