In General They Come... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #27 New 05-10-2012 04:40 PM
They come I move, they stop I move,
They fight I move, I have nothing to prove,

I turn they turn, I turn they follow,
No internal, no external, for all is hollow,

"How so?" they shout, "What tricks do you know?"
No tricks, life turns, a natural flow,

They come again grabbing, say my arm is like steel,
But there is no arm, it's just calmness they feel,

So they try intention to disrupt my center,
I remain untroubled for they're free to enter,

Then one pushes and strains, till it's bad for his health,
I look with compassion asking "why do you push yourself?"

Confused yet astounded they ask "Aikido? Is this it?"
I smile, they leave, I turn, I sit.
