and within knowledge everything is included;
your name, your identity, everything,
because this has been given to you by others -

and there will be a resurrection of your innocence.
You will become a child again, reborn.

You play to your own soul.

but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
