Endowed amongst those long still
Merited with awaking our slumbering nation
Mindless antipathy bestowed through foul animosity
Ending darkened barriers, splintered with hate
Tending to a fractured soul
Taken from a withering past

Toppled from rightful obscurity
Illuminate in a seething red gleam
Lamented in a premature grave
Lost, but not forgotten…
