The Hard Coinage of Courage (Prompted by Cubby)

A hero is born not from the laurels

Of glory but from the hard coinage

Of courage charging into the void

Stoically steadfast where others avoid

 

A coward is made of the wreaths

Of despair, inertia’s decay of the soul

Destroying what he cannot create

Resenting loss of comforts ingrate
