Heroes are lonely creatures

A poem from Betsy Tan dedicated to Mr Jeyaretnam

Heroes are lonely creatures.
You too cast a solitary shadow,
Singing your freedom song
To cold hearts and closed minds.
Oblivious to pity, apathy and jeers
Your eyes were alit with passion,
Fire in your belly fueled by firm conviction.
