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.
