Heroes?

Standard

What of heroes? Do they not feel fear when witnessing fate’s harsh blow? Often the truth is more mundane, for theirs is the will to act in the most selfish of ways; driven as they are to live with conscience clear they leave others of lesser virtues to endure regret.

For “Heroes,” forever tethered to righteous call, are by their nature, predisposed to still nervous hearts and to act when others, overwhelmed by hesitation brought on by senses, merely gaze. Blessed with spirit lifted towards hope, brandishing a will and a way, alone they stand as giants above all others.
