Courage is not the spawn of recklessness.
It is the marriage of persistance and self-sacrifice.
I use honour as my shield and faith as my sword.
Courage stands as a testament, a citadel,
to those who share in its brilliant voice.
In the halls of history, there is no greater glory,
than sacrificing one's life for another.
Courage is not merely the rescuing of others,
it can also mean saving ourselves.
For it is in reliance of courage,
that we can do battle with monsters from without,
as well as from within.
This is dedicated to my friend's husband, five time former world boxing champion, Lester Ellis.
