Courage! That’s all.

He was not fearless.

As a matter of fact

he was always filled with trepidation.

Yet he always found the courage

that galvanized his actions.

He walked into the burning house

and grabbed the little child.

He knew his soul would haunt him forever

if they burnt to death.

Never again he said to himself.

The memory of his mother

and his little brother

forever seared in his mind.

  1. Hi Jackie,

    Firemen are the some of the bravest, selfless people that I know, I’m reminded of a movie that I saw recently ” Fireproof”.

    I once saw a quote, “The secret of success is to do it afraid”

    Well written, as usual.
