Comments : Once a Warrior

    The title drew me in here... "Once a Warrior" ... at one time you were strong, a warrior... but throughout time and pain, you grew weaker and could no longer fight. Powerful title in itself.

    I love the first stanza, it's breathtaking and has a lot of imagery. I can just see the summer days blending together... they usually do.

    I like the mentioning of scar tissue. Health wise or love or whatever, you have scars. It will forever be there... a reminder of your pain.

    I love the line "there's no bite in these words now." -- you no longer have the strength to stand up for yourself, to say what you want to say.
