I am a Martial Artist, I see through different eyes,
I see a bigger picture, when others see gray skies.
Though many can’t conceive it, I stand… facing the wind.
My bravery, not from fighting, but from my strength within.
I am a Martial Artist, I’ll walk the extra mile,
Not because I have to but because it’s worth my while.
I know that I am different when I stand on a crowded street.
I know the fullness of victory, I’ve tasted the cup of defeat.
I am a Martial Artist; they say I walk with ease,
Though trained for bodily harm, my intentions are for peace.
The world may come and go, but a different path I’ll choose.
A path I will not stray from, no matter win or lose.
Dedicated to Instructor David Scott Arnold
