Brave Ones

    Brave ones are not only those on whose heads
    Beautiful crowns are bestowed.
    Brave ones are not those feet
    That shuffles the steps of regal dance.

    Brave ones are not only those faces
    The sun cast upon her luminous rays.

    Scarcely has in the poor man’s yard
    The pipe been blown!
    But in a rich man’s court,
    The bleating of goats and the mewing of cows
    Scarcely could subdue the sound of the trumpet.


    Even though the wall gecko can climb
    On the walls,
    Yet upon many a poor man’s thatch
    Its claws could still find their grips.

    Brave ones are really not only those women
    Who gave births to twins, triplets or even more?
    Brave ones are certainly not those
    Who claimed to have flushed many fetuses?
    And still put to bed a hundred others,
    Sometimes without rendering their last maternal care;

    Neither are they those who had held their victims
    With blood dripping from the heads!

    Surely these are not really brave ones!
    For brave ones are purely those men
    Who had forsaken their fraillities?
    And had forfeited their fondling?

   
    Surely these are not the only brave ones!
    For brave ones are sincerely those men
    Who remembered their manhood?
    And have unlocked their superior will.
    For from all these and from a lot more
    The brave ones are known.
