Hope’s Heroes

blessed are those
who have given their lives
in the war for peace

those peace-making soldiers
who have fought
with the double-edged truth
fastened to the right

and the olive branch
in the left.
in prison cells

they have tasted freedom
have been refreshed
at its founts when
the shadows of despair

reached out from every side.
these humble servants
are the heralds of tomorrow

the heroes of our hope
whose lives have paid
the costly price
a better dawn demands:

they shall burn
brighter than the stars
these children of the Christ.
