Bravery keeps going

Rises when sleep is the body’s clear preference
Starts its day while others are still enjoying their night

Keeps aiming for the goal, even as life’s vicissitudes rage
Builds, where there are few tools, and no known plans for success
Stretches every faculty to make the world safer, surer, better

For it is valiance in its purest form, bravery without selfishness
That faces hardships out of love, and never surrenders

And that will ever live on
