Courage Hope

His Last Stand

I see a man with a broken smile.
I see a warrior with a wounded knee.
I see a dreamer with a broken hope.
I see a preacher with a tattered word.
Tears from a painful loss covered his eyes
with a heart full of queries and confusions.
I don’t know this man so well
but only one thing is certain-
he is stronger than I think he is.
Amidst his downfalls, he stood with integrity
and inspired others to hope for more
while seeing the beauty of the ones who hurt him.
As they see it, he lost the race
but he was the only one, the only one
who fought for the good fight.
