In Aikido there is no control, no domination, no ego,
How can this be? That means there's more to know,
Neither control nor no control, in-between is Aikido.
No aim to dominate no need to sit and wait,
No need to panic, disturb or agitate,
No need for fight or need for flight, in-between, Aiki state.
In paranoia enemies all around, they surround, they abound,
In Aikido enemies don't exist, you look and look yet none can be found,
So the Aikido view pierces right through such illusion so truth can expound.
Now surrounded by enemies who think they are so, join in not, be Aikido once more,
And as they attack they enter the path, and are met by an almighty silent roar,
Aikido destroys with the peace it employs yet no one cries, no one dies, in-between all restores.
Aikido, motion of calmness,
Precision of motion,
Bathed in an ocean,
As angels reflect us,
Ageless yet new age,
Old scriptures, a new page,
The land of the rising sun,
Ended the land of the gun,
Mended the ways of the past undone,
Lended a hand of peace to everyone,
