Nice word choices. An interesting and heart-felt topic. I really like when you said life has heroic reality. Those two words you never really see together, especially about life. I find that idea something to ponder, and really is quite innovative in your poem.
I like this poem and your topics of love and freedom. Very pretty. You have an interesting format, and I like the reference to the sparrow and wild horse. My favorite lines are: A choice without love is reckless
...and bound to be wrong
