Poetry

Soul Of the Steal

by Kal A., Age 15 , Grade 10, Polaris K-12, Anchorage, ALASKA USA

The ore mixed with dirt

Goes into the burning coal


The metal melts 

 as the impurities turn to ash


With strength and endurance  

The metal gains a million folds 


And with will and dignity
A blade is drawn 


From the burning ashes of the forge 

The metal is now a burning soul


Quenched in oil 

To strengthen the body


And polished

To sharpen the mind 


The Soul Of the Steal

Forged 

To the Soul Of the Warrior
