A hero is always at odds
With the existing norms
He meets resistance at every step
Is persecuted
Then sacrificed
At the altars of the norms

A hero is for a change
For he understands
The weakness of the present
He brings a new wave
At the expense of his life
For a tomorrow better than today

A hero is in you and me
Only if we pay heed and
Listen to our inner voice indeed
If we do not give in
To the temptations of little comfort
Every moment at every step we meet

A hero is immortal
He lives through the ages
Because he stands for a cause while
Others live in a world of little comforts
Without raging against the dying of the light
And disappear in thin air without giving a fight

Hi Sage,
Life brings us endless beauty whether we see that or not is entirly a different matter.
I loved your precious comment.Thanks...so much..

Hi Peritia,
I think the poem and the picture go together and somehow I could manage to put them together...
Thanks for visiting..see you around.

Hi Rachana,
I got up in the morning and I felt my heart wants to say something and the first thing I did was to let the words out on my notebook..it inspires me as well to go on and do not let the light die..
