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


To the Soul Of the Warrior
