Sword of life
Brings you respect
and discipline
This is my first haiku so dont laugh at it..

My sinsei once told me about the sword of life. Sword of life is respect, courtesy, generousity and discipline while the sword of death is ignorance, arrogancy, hatred and disrespect

thats not a haiku - a haiku has 5 words on the first line, 7 words on the second line and then 5 words on the last line, good picture though :) (Smile)

Simple.

The philosophy that I cultivate through ken-jitsu is this;
"The sword that kills is the sword that gives life."
That is to say, I will only ever take life if I am simultaniously saving life.

Decent poem,
However, that exact image I have seen before...
like 2 years ago on some joke site... So maybe
use something else.

Other than like, I actually did like the poem...

I still remeber the haiku I read in Clavell`s shogun:

what are clouds
but an excuse for the sky
what is life
but an escape from death?

yours is nice though as a first try :) (Smile)
