98th Title Challenge: For There Are Many Great Deeds Done in the Small Struggles of Li

a poem by Chad Martinez, USA

For there are many great deeds done in the small stuggles of life- Victor Hugo

To have a choice at freedom
A voice, not such a small favor to ask when in the kingdom of greatness....
For there are many great deeds done in the small struggles of life...
Becoming Free was no small feat for anyone in the last 5 thousand years, you had to be blessed to witness the miracle,
And today here we stand, hands over mouth, for fear we might speak some truth, as the world is not run by either of us yet and still we cling to a common ground...
A belief in fairness,
along with free choices to do or say as we please,
Doing the right things somedays seems largely legalese,
As what was right one day, can tomorrow lead you morally and ethically astray.
But we always must fight for the broken system to right itself, for without hope there can be no change, each baby step of the process, though slow,
promises future generations a possible better day ahead...

For one day you, you, too shall realize what Freedom's experience is like,
For there are many great deeds done in the small (and not-so- small) struggles of life...
