be he praised up high or one never denied,
by fear you’re driven forwards and backwards—
let it be, honestly, devotion or precise aim,
and so, both, when all is fair and safe;
a good man is a hero, as is truth, justice,
and only mercy makes men honorable—
and only mercy saves their high ends—
be it fast fantasies of endless connection
or fairest friends and their goodly intents.
you can love longingly or just try to;
it’s appreciated both ways when you do,
for, duty breeds duty when you hold hope.
with growth and delay you must comply,
so you know just on who you can rely.
