I serve no woman
and I serve no man.
I only serve myself,
and do the best I can.

I wander this world
at peace and all alone.
I fear nothing in life,
and I do things on my own.

In this, I do not get hurt
and no one breaks my heart.
No one ever lets me down
and no one tears me apart.

I am my own master,
I will answer to no one.
I am a Ronin,
a lone man under the sun.

I am an educated man,
and I possess much skill.
I have a sharp wit
and a very strong will.

I have faced death,
each time I have walked away.
I never lose a life's battle,
I look forward to new ones everyday.

Author's Notes:
My friend called me this the other day, I have been on my own for a very long time, and I rely on no one.a Ronin is a masterless samurai who ventures on his own in life, I guess this is me! Thank you for the time, Joe

Another good write...But jump into life with both feet. Without the heartaches there is no growth. Learning from the pain makes us stronger in the long run.
Great write!
