Just Around The bend,

Updated on December 24, 2009


Just Around The Bend.


Driven to run

fearless into a 

bright orange

burning building,
white heat searing lungs,

browned hair burning

as she saves the child.

In one moment

of compassion,

flinging his body full length
across the grenade

that tumbles into the

camoflauge mess tent,
saving the many lives

around him from

red hot shrapnel.

Isolated in a small

pocket of the world,

in dense green jungles,
caring for tribes who

would kill them

if the gods favored it.

Diving to shove

a toddler from

the path of a car,

and dying on black asphalt.

Heroes come in

many colors,

burnt black,

blood red, and

heavenly gold,
In the rainbow of man

they are the pot

of gold at its end.
