Hearts of Heroes

Heroic Hearts

Frail and hunched over,

the body surrenders to unquenchable exhaustion;

but hearts of heroes dance onward,

sifting through yesterday’s ruins to unearth tomorrow’s hope.


Traumatized and escaping further within,

the mind dreads its tortured encasement;

but hearts of heroes march ahead

in an unshakable warrior’s bravado.


Shredded nerves dangle

by pulsating threads of bloody sinew;

but hearts of heroes bear forward,

casting golden rods unto eternity.

Dedicated to U.S. Military, Firefighters, First Responders, Police Officers, and all other Heroes.
Thank you for your heroic service!
