Hero’s Vow

by Viktor Tejada

The sun wakes and waits for your awakening.
A reminder that hope is here,
and that light exists.
But most of all,
you must never forget that you are that sun.
And that at your peak, you are summer to all.
The warmest of all seasons.
The brightest of day.
The shortest of nights.

You will set later than usual,
and that’s a good thing.
Share your light,
and never set until you have done all that is right.
Sin is nothing but the inevitable,
just like the day,
just like the night.

You are not the villain,
never then,
and never now.
Keep this promise.
You are a hero,
and this is your vow.
