You Are A Hero


I read your story
You deserve a place in our history
‘Cos your dedication to our cause
Surely, shortened our course.
You are a hero.

The world read your stunt-studded story.
All reckon it a remarkable piece of history,
A splendid display of bravery
Exploits explicitly exemplary
You are a hero.

You are a perfect role model
To our youth, an inspiration
You will, assuredly, inform their aspirations
Markedly molding their morals
You are a hero

In the Hall of Fame,
We give you a place.
A place only Greats grace
You pillar worthy to be fabled
You are a hero

You deserve a monument
‘Cos your role was momentous
You rightly earned those memorials
For deeds that supplied the momentum
That eventually earned us our expected moment
You are a hero.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
