The Warrior

I wanted to relax.
Needed a break
Warrior shook me
“Get awake”

I shouted back:
“What the hell?
I am on vacation
Get lost or I will yell!”

“This is my home,
Far away from battle”
No enemy is here,
So let me settle”

“At last I can loosen,
A doze I can take”
“In peace of home,
Enjoy the break.”

“Do not disturb,
Just go away
You too enjoy life,
Do whatever you may”

Warrior said:
“Caution you must keep”
Enemy will attack
When you are asleep”

Enemy came,
When you came home
You carry the battle,
In crowd or alone

The enemy is inside you,
Alive and awake
The battle outside
Is completely fake.

When you fight outside,
You fight the enemy inside
But the moment you relax,
He revives big and wide.

Till he is dead,
You must not get asleep
Every moment everywhere,
Vigil you must keep.

Kill him who hides within,
Do not ignore
When he dies,
No more battles anymore.
