Be a Hero in the Strife

They say, life can amaze you,
For it can bring abrupt changes and turns.
But life is just a joyful ride,
For the one, who with experience learns. 

A dream, an ambition, it is all attainable,
All you need to do, is believe.
A hope, some faith, will find its way,
All you need is an eye, to perceive.

You lose sight of who you want to be. 
You blame yourself, screaming, “Why am I me?”
You wish you could just be free.
Open your eyes and you’ll see

That life is what you make it, and sometimes it’s hard.
We get battered and bruised, mistreated and scared.

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.

In the worldā€™s broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!
