Rise and Rise Again


Rise and Rise Again


When lambs become lions,
--victory's part
holds much less importance
than matters of heart

Brave men come to honor
--through trials and travails,
though courage may falter
and hope sometimes fails

Their leader inspires
--resolution unfailed
men's faith and belief,
as his own doubts he veils

Through battles and burdens
--ideals will ascend
their substance and truth
over time still undimmed

They fight not for glory
--but for hearth and for home
not for riches or kings,
but for liberty's throne

They will rise, and again
--'til tyranny's fall
until lambs become lions
Free men one and all



Submitted to Friday Poetically's challenge to write a poem using a movie preference, at One Stop Poetry.  Thanks, as usual, to the inspiration.

I really can't convey in mere words what that speaks to me of.

Inspirational.
