Facing my Giants

Facing my Giants

There they stand
towering
while everything beneath them
is cowering
already defeated,
they breathe death
already vanquished
they are already dust.
no breeze to blow them
they simply melt into the dirt
They get even smaller
while their enemies grow taller.

They say I should follow
but I hesitate.
What they offer 
my heart cannot tolerate.

I cannot stand by
and be destroyed,
I must fight back
go on the attack
cut down these giants
in open defiance.

I will not be stopped
my powers have been unlocked
by the mystery of who I am,
no, not one of the damned
or a slaughtered lamb.

I am a warrior,
I will not lose.
I have the heart of a lion
more powerful thany any giant.
