It is not victory

Nor escalating success

That causes the world to remember.

They will remember depth of soul

Strength of courage amidst impending defeat

Will, that is unwavering even when shackled, when imprisoned- still stands.

The narrative of the real remembers what the world thinks of as weak

Weakness is only spoken for in the present

But what was deemed weakness is lifted as legend

We remember not victory

But bravery, a person of integrity

A person’s value of humanity.
