Be Fierce Embrace Change
Looking at oneself;
is not easy to do.
You tend to discover things;
about yourself you do not like too.
If you want to change;
don’t complain, do it.
You have to be fierce;
to change yourself and patterns.
It will be a battle,
and will take time.
as long as you are happy with yourself;
when you are finished;
that is what matters.

Dungeon Prompts Only For the Fierce of Heart: Lost in the Fierce Winter Night By Blair Gaulton

Lost in the Fierce Winter Night
Snow scalds;  
riveting body with quivers  
and shivers. 
As we gouge our way through; 
searching for our camp 
in the oncoming gloom. 
Bored wind snaps 
suddenly vicious.   
Trying to drown us in snow;  
as we go.  
No chance to get back anymore;  
We have to build an Igloo fast. 
If we do not want; 
this night to be our last. 
We built it wrong; 
the wind blew it down.
It was cold;
we had to keep moving and talking;
to each other to stay awake;
until daybreak.
Otherwise we would not survive.
Through the storm we rambled;
clambered until we could go no more.
Pushed each other;
fighting with the storm;
to keep warm.
A crack of light in the sky
Daylight will be here by and by.
On we went;
past our points of no return;
We started to have;
fata morgana moments in the snow.
We no longer knew;
what was real or not.
Suddenly we heard a shout;
people were there.
Saved!

The Fierce Ones
Those who dare are free;
they do not bend the knee;
to any system who tries to dictate;
what they should be.

Dungeon Prompts Only for the Fierce of Heart: Ode to the Fierce Hearted by Blair Gaulton

Ode to the Fierce Hearted
Waves snarled;
gnawing at the ship bit by bit.
Wind cackles;
we are caught in its grip.
Ship being thrown like a ping pong ball
trapped in this squall.
Radio is broke;
we cannot make the S.O.S. call.
Looks pass from eye to eye;
should we say our final goodbyes?
Looks like we will all die.
Gentlemen, the Captain said, if we are going to die;
we must try, let us fight.
For only the fierce of heart;
can find a way;
to face down this storm.
We must be even more fierce;
we will keep on going ’til we reach the shore!
Enflamed and enpowered we struggled;
to keep the ship together and afloat.
Stop the water from filling up the ship like a moat.
Wrestling back and forth with the storm.
We were fierce like the storm;
yet we fought even more
exhausted ploughed on until all our energy was gone
Suddenly a cry land in sight!
that restored our fierceness, energy and will to fight.
The storm would not let go.
Neither would we;
We saw a shoal ahead
normally we would be filled with dread.
many could end up dead.
To the shoal! Became our goal.
We scuddered our ship,
and survived because of our fierceness and drive.
All happy to have made it out alive.
Thank you Captain for your words!
