Standing firm in adversity.

Heroic Standard

by LisaMay

Within shadows, 
my mind is a sword,
brandished bright-flashing
into sunshine’s arc.

Heroic, my standard unfurls.
My dented battle armour 
has chinks.
Undaunted, I wear it.

Slain dragons bleed
while others shadow-gather.
I raise my singing sword
and stand firm.
