Heroes (Remembrance Poem)

On the roads they walked lies their dead body.
For the peace they fought for, their blood was shed. 
The pain and agony they went through,
The touchy sacrifice,
The loneliness,
The shame, and the persistence of our heroes yielded us victory.
The words they spoke,
The fight they fought,
The peace they sought and the precious life they lived speaks for them,
Even when the agony of death had shut their mouth at the going down of the sun.
In the morning we shall remember these ones,
And pray for their souls,
For they are our heroes,
Through which the liberty of mankind was established.
