Heroic Hearts –
Frail and hunched over, the body surrenders to unquenchable exhaustion; but heroic hearts dance onward, sifting through hopes of springtime.
Traumatized and escaping further within, the mind dreads its tortured ruins; but heroic hearts march ahead in a warrior’s bravado.
Torn and barely intact, the nerves dangle by frayed threads of bloody sinew; but heroic hearts bear forward, casting golden rods unto eternity.
Dedicated to Firefighters, U.S. Military, First Responders, Police Officers, and all other Heroes.
