Pak Serak

by Razel Davies

Limp around,
On a club foot.
Hold out a hand,
And lame.
All around,
In their eyes weak,
In your mind,
So strong.

Your power,
Unknown to them.
You have it,
That which can win.
Working it out.
You know,
The ways,
They will lose.

Build your style,
End their scorn.
Win their tournaments,
Beat their arts.
Show the world,
A cripple in body,
Can stand taller than them all.
No longer inferior,
To them.
Now their eyes open,
To you,
The superior warrior.


Author's Note: Pak Serak, a cripple who found his weakness to be a strength as he it inspired him to create one of the most powerful martial arts in the world.
