Building Character, Champions of Liberty
Ode to the Epic Hero
Your epic quest begins at birth
To find your purpose here on earth.
Along the way your heart will learn
How good from evil to discern.
Moments in time will come to define
Trials of your soul, to test and refine.
Discover things that will be treasured,
Perhaps not always in money measured—
Gems of knowledge, virtue, truth,
Eternal standards for families and youth—
To strengthen, protect, and to prepare
A way to escape the enemy’s snare.
The journey of life demands your part—
Courage, faith, and a willing heart.
You need not fall, though you may stumble,
For angels fail not to help the humble.
Your lone small flame may not seem bright,
Yet it reveals the way to greater light.
Day by day, big and little—
Answers await life’s every riddle.
Just when you think you can’t continue,
You’ll find the epic hero within you.
Honor and virtue will be your choice.
Return home triumphant, and rejoice.
