Heroes of our past

They wrote,
They spoke,
They sang,
They marched in black and white…

Across villages, cities and towns,
Peacefully fought for their rights…
Against the narrowness of minds…
The accepted order of their times…

For some, patrons of light…
Heroes of our past…
For others, trouble makers…
Angels of unrest…
Unruly, disobedient women and men…

Today…I wonder…
In our colourful digital age…
Of instant global interchange…
Are there any of them left?
