Courage Death

Bravado

Scrutinizing eyes
and those criticizing lips
welcomed me boldly.

Piercing words struck me,
claws of injustice tore me,
breaking me apart.

Amidst the clamor
hideous creatures stood behind –
devouring, roaring!

“Guilty!”, said the judge.
The spectators clapped their hands,
snatching victory.

Despite these memories,
I stood firmly, undaunted,
wearing a great smile.

With vivid facade,
fears cannot be reflected.
I am still unmoved!

The approaching death
cannot intimidate me,
I am not a coward!

They tightened the rope
As it signaled my farewell.
“Kill him!”, they shouted.

“Finally it’s done
my pretended courage ends
as death mends my fears.”
