The Age of the Warrior Poet

What characterises the Warrior Poet is the following:

1. Courage.
2. Fitness of mind and body.
3. Emotional independence.

I believe these are the fundamentals of a modern man. You might think it arbitrary, or even arrogant to simply present these as aspects of the future of masculinity. I call it boldness.

I also call it the result of intense exasperation. The time for self-doubt, self-loathing and apologising is over. The age of “not giving a flying fuck” has just begun.

If you listen carefully you’ll hear the heavens singing. The angels are crooning down to us, and they are saying, “What’s taken you so fucking long?!”
