The medal, proudly pinned
To your chest
Marks you as
A Hero of the Soviet Union.
You are much more
Than that.

You are a hero to
Us all,
Motivated by compassion,
A burning desire for freedom,
Our love crosses
All borders,
Mighty oceans,
Barren plains,
Desolate tundra and
Concrete jungles
That we might embrace you,
Our brothers,
Our sisters,
You who gave to us
So much,
And received in return
So little.


So, what do you think?
