The essence of the good fight may not be valued
Nor well quantified in the weight of rubies and gold,
Or measured in accolades with standing ovations.
It may, silently and honestly be accounted for
By the rich dimension of solid integrity and
Ardent embodiment of the laudable qualities
The human race is innately endowed with.
That a legacy, yet, may be passed from one
To future generations, that humanity indeed
Is worth more than sheer hatred, prejudice,
Bigotry, plain greed, the profane and vile,
But truly possesses that which is honourable
Purely commendable, kind and simply humane.
