The men of courage
who have gone before,
Have left a path for us to tread.
And though they never have won much fame,
they leave great lessons in their stead.
Though it be not for one man’s gain,
Or politically wise,
Still courage when it comes
Will lead the way to gains which
Stand the test of time.
Sometimes a President, sometimes a King,
A Senator or common man,
Must face the darkest evil men then know,
And face the evil all alone.
Tis then a virtue must arise
and courage is its name,
to send a message the right must come
and things must never be the same.
Read on my daughter,
Be inspired my son,
These tales of bravery gone by.
O learn their lessons for the time may come
When you may have to stand and fight.
But should that hour e’er arrive
And courage you must find,
Inside your soul will be the place to look,
for there this virtue must abide
(look inside, for there this virtue must abide).
