A Ninja’s Ways

Rumor has it that a burger place is behind December 5th being named International Ninja Day!  I think the odds are this is true.  But it doesn’t change a thing about how I’m choosing to see it. 🙂

A Ninja's Ways
by Michael Romani

The truest key to a ninja's ways
Is learning how he centers his days
Whether it's only spent in fighting
Or reaching for the higher truths, soul enlightening

This this is the truest meaning
And the essence of a ninja's being
Always seeking a higher spiritual state
Looking for life's meaning before it's too late

This is the word then of the true ninja
And warrior's word is the bond of all ninja
All of this is but to live and endure
Prevailing against all that might become impure

Ninpo is the way given much deference
To become in every way deeper in significance
Always calm and thoughtful in every way
This then is the stealth that carries the day

The battle is had and already won
Before the enemy even knows it has begun
Every motion conformed to right intention
Nothing ever escapes the ninja's attention
