An ode to those we admire – A Poem

They are mothers, forefathers, mentors, warriors, and loved ones:

Who conquered obstacles in the kingdoms of darkness,

Who by their integrity and often, without words,

Quenched the flames of idle rumors.

They traveled miles on foot, by boat, or by plane.

They made do with meager rations –

So that we might gain a far better life.

So that together with the legacy of their deeds,

We may inherit and live in a brighter future,

Than they had ever known.
