Favorite Quote:
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.

Who am I? I am the Hawk

I am the warrior, whose martial spirit reigns supreme

I fight back to end a fight, and I stand alone

I am the combatant, the tough

Who are you?

Who am I? I am the Dove

The peacemaker, who cannot exist without violence

Yet I need not resort to violence to win

I am the soother, the tamed

Who are we?

We are eternal.

The author's comments:
This is an old poem I wrote for my English class in 7th Grade. It's a dialogue between two opposing symbols, and I was inspired by reading about two brothers who become superheroes in a comic book series by DC Comics. The aggressive one becomes the Hawk while the pacifist becomes the Dove. I hope you enjoy.
