Warrior #2

warrior ring #2 in a series of 12

~Crazy Lace Agate~
size 7.5



 





"Some of the greatest battles will be fought within the silent chambers of your own soul."

~Ezra Taft Benson



 


 



As this collection grows,
and my ideas cement themselves in silver and stone,
I feel grounded.
I feel strong.

I want the wearer of this piece to feel the same way.
strong.
brave.
ready.

Our battles are not so different,
our struggles come from a similar thread.
The distance from head to heart 
is sometimes incalculable.
and we struggle
between that distance.

Words unsaid.
self-doubt.
insecurity.
blame.
anger.
futile thoughts for a strong woman.

So this piece is a stance,
a proud defense,
for all those lurking doubts.

A piece to defend you
from your own distances,
and the distances you find between others.
A piercing arrow into the *dark* 

Keep your head up,  brave warrior.
Your battle is mine, too.
We can fight this together.
