A Story by Carol Cashes

Not written by me, but recognized myself immediately

I won't ever apologize for being
a warrior.  I haven't chosen this
path.  I have held a sword in my
hands more often than I've held
flowers.  And if my battle scars
frighten you, look for someone, 
whose soul has no thorns
and draws no blood
