Courageouscountry as flag
Not because he's told to,
Not because he's asked to,
Not because he has to,
Just simply, courageous.

He may not be the first,
He may not be the last,
He may not be the bravest,
He's simply, courageous.

He rises over terror,
He calmly conquers fear,
He pays no heed to horror,
Being simply, courageous.

Not because of medals,
Not because of fame,
Not because of money,
He's only, courageous.

He fights to win the battle,
He fights to win the war,
He fights for those unable,
He's victorious and, courageous.
