Warriors

Moment by moment,
as warriors, they face endless
battles with the defilements,
thoroughly investigating all
phenomena and their causes…
mindfulness and wisdom,
the faithful companions
of a well tended mind.
They extract all weeds
diligently plucking away
until there are no more,
not a single one remains,
trunks, stumps, and roots
completely removed.
The victory is sweet for such
a heart who is one with Dhamma,
none other than Nibbana.
