A Hero, A Nationalist
It is growing like a tree
Inside the heart that makes man better be
With noble soul in company
That endows him with strange potency.
His tender youth secured from the world’s alarms
In the soft prison of his country’s arms
Eyes sparkling gaze at the rainbow’s slope
Carried upon the mighty swell of hope.
The land of beauty with him was fair
His first glimpse of light and whiff of air
His love for those made him brave
Gave him vigor that can’t be carried by the wave.
The strength of heart and hands
Inspired by the beauty of our land
I’ll clutch the stars to my heart
Sustain them with my blood redder still
Once locked deep in me, never we’ll be torn apart
And the thirst for fame to nothing we instill.
I’ll step on the clouds in a silvery noon
Touch each line, curve and fantastic form
Warmth and brightness I’ll bestow upon them soon
And in the sky be their shelter from the storm.
