The Bodyguard

The Bodyguard is like a barren mountain,
Expressionless, distant and isolated.
He is restricted. He is committed to a purpose.
His every living thought is the safety of his charge.
He is a military “point man”.
He is quietly looking; silently warning.
He has accepted the possibility of personal sacrifice.
He must be feared and respected in the same breath.
Inactivity cannot be viewed as leisure.
“On point”, the mind is always racing.
The body is quick to react to negative movement.
The Bodyguard stands one on one, toe to toe.
He is the child of The Martial Artist, but he is not free,
For he is a prisoner of his trade.
