I am a protector, a defender.
This does not mean that I am naturally brave... I too have fear,
I am not strong of body, I can not lift my own weight or dazzle a crowd with X amount of push ups.
I do not have an iron will. On a daily basis I make poor choices, and bad decisions that I wished I could undo.
My heart is very soft, tears my constant companion.
I do not like the sight of blood or the feel of pain.
I am VERY meek and VERY modest.
I have no skill in the art of fighting or training in self defense.
I can not run very far or fast.
I have no gifts of strength or insight,
I will stand between you and your fear. I will take the blow to prevent your being struck. I will speak when you have no voice. I will defend you to my own detriment, because I love you,
Sometimes I am so home sick I day dream about sitting on the couch with my mother and snuggling into her side...
