Unknown hero
leaves a signature
written not
through a name.
Words paint
the silhouette…
Magnifying the heart.
Darkness cannot hide
eyes that are revealed
from the blaze
eighteen inches below.
Tears squeezed
from a desire
to stand in the light
threaten to drench
the flame.
You long to be closer …
To teach each
how to stand…
How to fly
When to take
the first steps…
But wisdom crafted
a suit of anonymity
to shield the vulnerable
from their victor’s enemy.
Only the Book
holds the Answer
to this conundrum….
