My New Mantra

A commenter on my blog suggested that I read the following poem, “The Warrior’s Reminder” by Erykah Badu. To tell you the truth, I never knew this poem existed inside of the Mama’s Gun CD’s booklet.

It has been sitting in my closet for years! I dashed to my closet and searched for the CD. I finally found it and the words spoke to me. I read them over and over. It has become a source of inspiration for me. Thanks Cole for the suggestion!

Mama's Gun

“The Warrior’s Reminder”

I am awake
My mind is free
I am creative
I love myself
My will power is strong
I am brave
I practice patience
I don’t judge folks
I give not to receive
I don’t expect
I accept
I listen more than I talk
I know I’ll change
I know you’ll change
I’ll hold on one more day
I start over when necessary
I create my own situations
I am cosmic
I don’t have the answers
I desire to learn
I am the plan
I am strong
I am weak
I want to grow
I know I will
I take on responsibility
I hide myself from no one
I’m on my path
Warriors walk alone
I won’t let my focus change
Taking out the demons in my range…

-Erykah Badu
