HERO

HERO

I'm too OLD, I'm too TIRED, and I'm too SICK to joust Quixoiti's windmills. But point my horse in a goodly direction and this lance can still pierce the heart of a traitor. And even perchance it be that I fall, a dead mans glory is to sacrifice for his friends in an honorable pursuit with freedom it's ends.

So to those who are worried, to those who know fear. I shall leave you this wisdom if you'll give me your ear.

All men concern themselves, and all men do fear, the courageous run towards it the cowards run rear.

A hero is nothing but fear run over, and over until done, a cowards running never is done.

So when fear does beset thou, and believe you me it shall.

Charge right at it yelling " FEAR GO TO HELL ! "

And perhaps by some chance as the cordite and fog clear, the sound of brave rabble will ring out a cheer.

And echo it will from sweet rise to sweet rise, grown men in their weary cry and not a dry eye

The name of that hero, that one who first yelled, is non other than you, yourself and your fears

You'll likely always disdain it, you'll always deny

Saying " the fear was behind me, I'm merely survived "... and walk in wide wonder that any would praise

A man who did but duty for freedoms remains.

Heros aren't born, they show up.

My favorite line from that song: " and if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means I do not know " .

Thanks for the comment, song reminder, one of my first and fondest memories of my rockin youth.

I was gonna go through the

I was gonna go through the lyrics to find a quote i liked, aswell as the one you posted, but as im going through it, i realise theres just too many that i might aswell add the whole thing:) really hits me this one

"Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear them say

Carry on, my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know

On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say

Carry on, my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you

Carry on, my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry (don't you cry no more)"

Very nice Steadfast.

Hurl down the guantlet on fear! Thanks for sharing.

I AM is all that is. Everything else is malleable.

Thanks Jimbo : )

Another way to look at it is that a hero is just a confused coward who ran the wrong way.
