Put Down Your Sword

Staring into the eyes
Of adversaries strong
Fearful shivers, strained breath
Knee-jerk reactions to keep
My world safe from harm's way
Protect, shelter, preserve
At all cost, at all cost
Sword drawn in anxious
Anticipation of the brawl to come
Blood shed, lives lost
Brokenness ensues
And in an instant, with
A miraculous touch
The ear is back, wholeness
Put down your sword
