You play to your own soul.

who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.

If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.

And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
