The warrior of life -- Guru Gobind Singh

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice. ~ Martin Luther King

Here is my interpretation of Guru Gobind's poem, "Deh Shiva" -

Dear God give me this boon,

To never shirk from doing right
To never fear when I go to fight
to ever have the confidence to win

Let my heart learn
through ordeals of life
to have the desire
to remember your name
incessantly

And when the time has come
let me die bravely in the battlefield
