via Daily Prompt: Martyr

He, who, died for his country

lived forever in the history.

With his golden name impregnated

with the saga of glorious victory.


Between the life and death,

he had to make a difficult choice.

He chose the pride of his nation, over the situation,

that commended his invaluable sacrifice.


For him, it was the end of life over the death,

that too, bounded with numerous hopes and faith.

A mother may have lost her son &

a wife may have missed her husband.

May be a child would have been orphaned again,

but above all, he was reborn as a martyr: a true legend!
