Between a hero and a coward

Are you brave or just a coward?
I see you run with all that power
flee and leave the rest behind
don’t fight the evil
just take their bribes
everything will be safe in time
as long as you get paid tonight-
you say you feared for your career
feared for everything you hold dear
but you ran away-that much is clear
you took the cash-all silence here.
Are you brave-truly a hero
because all I see
is just a person
you aren’t too blame
for the abuse received but
your silence still is not bravery.
