Noble

Stop yourself
Don’t let shadow
Fester in your heart.
Ask yourself
When you last
Dawned on your humanity.
Keep your spine
Stretched out,
Uncoiled from cowardice.
Let courage
Shield your ego
From trivial blows.
Learn Dignity
From those who refuse
To sell it at the price of contempt.
Learn courage from those
Who remain rooted
In upholding
The last shrubs of truth.
Aspire always
To be nothing
Short of
Noble
