Courage - Poem by Kishore Asthana

Back to the wall, when there's nothing at all
Nowhere to go, no more to fall
When despair reigns and few stand tall
One spirit soars through impossible doors
One solitary soul, as diamond to coal
With flag unfurled,
Can change the world

He has the will, he has the ire
To set this world of ours afire
He rises above his self and mine
He glows in the dark and makes us shine

Just pause & consider
and let us see
If that is you
Or that is me
