Heroes

A poem about heroes for this prompt and also for FOWC: Adorn and Linda G. Hill’s JusJoJan 2021 (which I am really glad is happening, by the way 😀 ).

Not all heroes receive a medal,
Not everyone is adorned with praise,
Yet they’re proven people of mettle,
Facing hardship with courage and grace.

My heroes are those who persevere,
Sometimes quietly, sans speech or fanfare:
Those who keep on fighting fear,
Those of whom I might be unaware.
