Heroes and Honours

(In memory of past and present contributors to history and society)

Whenever I raise my right hand

To make an arc

Of reverence beside my forehead

To pledge my honorary salutation

To the history’s figures of stature

And ancestral heroes of the past,

I recall the real pictures

Of their painful struggles

Inherent in their dying wishes

Crowned with glory at last,

Upon the edifices’ heroes’ past

Their brave names carved with blood

On the history’s wall as epitaph’s honour

And enshrined in the world’s pantheon.
