Cows contentedly chew the cud

Calves play delightedly in mud

But man with resentment chews

Plays not in mud but enters feuds

Is great hero blameless all alone

If he ruminates on pastures gone?

True heroism shown outwardly

Echoes in chambers privately

When ghosts possess from past

The hero stands firm to the last

Not lingering on guilty remorse

Standing tall or poised on horse

Against odds he fights with sword

Gliding skills across chess board

Clapping at novel art and science

Enjoying notes - their subtle nuance

Engaging spirit of grand heroism

Uniting force and avoiding schism


O Lord your devotees are heroes and heroines; when I feel despondent raise my spirits in Thy oneness and fearlessness. Grant that I might find glory in engaging and sharing Thy glory. That my chest may swell with Thy strength for the welfare of all Thy beings.
