LIFE

For P.C. Jones

 

Why are all our heroes dead ?

Is it because the living

Do not loom over us, larger than life,

But their faults do?

 

We remember the courage of the dead

Honour their wisdom

Take the truth of their lives to heart

And love them always

Because they practiced what they preached

And died for the struggle.

 

Still, who knows the courage it takes

To get up every morning and breathe

In

Out

In

Out

In

Out

Living

Not the grand passions of the hero

But the silly human moments of life?

 

I do.

And I respect

You

Who choose to live for the struggle
