WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Courage

Bravely into the smoke without much hope they went

No time to pause but purposely into needed ascent

Above the fold, you’ll find the moments of courage

Dignified into the tears cried dripping onto the page

Even in these darkest hours of vainglorious humanity

There were those who gave all as they shined brightly

The stars in heaven twinkle as if somewhat reverently

While others offered thankfulness bent on knees prayerfully

Into the charred remains and building burning never to return

These are the lessons of life from which the best might learn

Too many lives in tatters, shattered harshly by falling debris

Too many gone in those moments, giving all for you and me

There in the burning embers carried in our hearts’ tragedy

Are the pieces of courage that we’ll remember for all of history
