Long Have I Dreamed As A Warrior

Long have I dreamed
as a warrior
to have the right weapons
and armour
to be able to face any foe.

Bring me the shield of Achilles
that can block every blow
and twist to wherever
An enemy go.

Give me the aegis of Athena
to cover my back and my chest
on which the circling snakes
never rest
and spit beams of lightning
on whoever touches me.

Let the giant sword of Goliath
find its way into my hand
and when the blue steel flickers
no enemy will be able to stand.

but moreover let the spear of bitter mercy
protect me
even against unseen enemies
and let me remember
who’s side it did pierce
and always be true to Him.
