Assumption: Daredevil

Achilles, the Hero of heroes,
Was born in Homer’s inner eye.

Grew, fought, won and famed!

Robbed of by the arrows of time.
But, still lives beating the time.

A daring dimension

Survived Time, darkness, hatred

Epic and hubris.


Changing forms of that great–
Hunter, trembled before Achilles.

And when the Death’s footsteps
Followed him, Achilles turned–
Back, smiled and proclaimed:

“I will live even after your death.”
