The First Step


Somewhere here on this mortal land,
Existed a state with barbaric head.

Where prejudice prevailed, rules were neglect.
Might ruled as right_ poor owed dread.

But among the men; with suffering hearts,
A valiant gazes towards the brute,

With falcon’s eyes_ Ulysses breast,
Near the savage approached the youth.

Before the edge of sharpest sword
Steady he stood by austere truth.

“When pen ousts the fright of sword,
Then people fear nadie but God.

No more the loot, ywis ye crook.
Enough ma tribe has faced the ruth! ”

Those were the dialogues by the stout,
That shamed unjust_ provoked his crowd.

He fought for the people, till his breath,
Thus harbored the revolt in their chests.

No else illumes the way for you,
Barriers are broken, when tries the resolute.
