Valiance

I am the essence of independence
I am wonder and speculation
Danger
Adventure
Thrill
The eldritch fortitude of pursuit
I am the love call of nature
The lurid hues of the forest
I am life
Without me there is no stronghold
Without me there is no balance
I face the enemy single handed
Swinging my halberd over my armor
I am trust
I am conviction and skepticism
I am the dog with cocked ears, laying in wait
Or the bride who waits for word from the field
I am mettle
Faith
Nerve
Belief
I am fearless, undaunted
Firm, gallant
On my own volition
I play the role of the hero
The damsel in distress
I ward off the virulent villain
I am vicarious atonement
Ceasing the unjust verdict of vengeance
When the only answer is unyielding tenacity
The peril in every escapade alarms me not
But pushes me all the more
I laugh at death in the face
Mock its rancid breath
I contumaciously deride death
As if it would ever be the end of me
As if it could ever stop me
Unending am I - without change, without revision
The scarlet fade of the gleaming sun
Is as ever-present as I
Living the hearts of the brave
Weeping through the tears of gallant
I am the spunk in every story
The truth of every moral
The lionhearted filled with the roaring cries of battle
The stag baying for its winsome mate
I am the vicissitude of fate, of season
The circle of all being
Through the spill of crimson
Waged against brother
Through the
I am audacious
Daring
Determined
I will not be pushed down
My fortitude keeps me alert
Your kiss keeps me charging
Your smile keeps me raging
Vindicate I, the vigilant
Vitalize I, the virtuous
I am the moon that shines on the bloody battlefield
I am the spirit of strength floating through every man
I am courage
I am bravery
I am valiance
