No White Flags

Footprints of Iron
placed Heavy into the earth
made not of animal or man
but of Iron spirit and soul
that bleeds lifeblood into
the ground and plants hope
a journey that is being witnessed 
for those who believe in miracles
one made of new rivers and lakes
like the ocean giving birth

I wrote this for Steve Gleason. I've always been a fan of Steve and his unmeasurable determination. I hope to also help bring awareness to this disease, that is ALS. Doesn't hurt that Steve is also a fan of Pearl Jam. Lol NWF
