The fast trade of winds.
Thoughtless testimonials lacking
courage. Broad strokes of bravery
hold fast against the enemy even
when the heart suggests other courses
Few know how to step forward.
Dedication is the future from those
who have marched before us, holding
tight the banner, raising the flag; the
common voice becomes a stream and then
Honor comes at a cost. Names
inscribed on monuments are the shadows
of who we are.
