A Hero Can Be Anyone


If anyone can be a hero
why should you lie
keep your lips silent
and hide in the shadows around

if anyone can be a hero
why let your voice be tamed
keep your soul quiet
and keep the world out

If anyone can be a hero
why do you wear a mask
keep that smile up
and present another one like you

If anyone can be a hero
then listen to my distressed heart
loving and dying, beating and beaten
waiting for the dark knight to come.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
