Who am I? I am the Hawk
I am the warrior, whose martial spirit reigns supreme
I fight back to end a fight, and I stand alone
I am the combatant, the tough
Who are you?
Who am I? I am the Dove
The peacemaker, who cannot exist without violence
Yet I need not resort to violence to win
I am the soother, the tamed
Who are we?
We are eternal.
This is an old poem I wrote for my English class in 7th Grade. It's a dialogue between two opposing symbols, and I was inspired by reading about two brothers who become superheroes. The aggressive one becomes the Hawk while the pacifist becomes the Dove. I hope you enjoy.
If I'm reading this right, I like how you identify that there is a lover and a fighter in all of us. I have never said to be one or the other.
That is one way to put it certainly. The duality between the peace lover and the fighter is one that turns in a never ending cycle.
it's cool to see someone inspired by good art. It's even cooler when you're inspired by comic books
Very cool, deep too.
