Hero


They say hero's are great,
But then why do we wait,
For one to come,
When a criminal's on the run

Everyone loves a hero,
Or so is said,
Some turn them down,
And hide in the shadows

Anyone can be,
A hero,
A person you see,
Just walking down the street,
Could save you or me

A hero teaches us many things,
How to hold on longer,
To be stronger,
And never give up hope

There's a hero in all of us,
That keeps us true,
Keeps us healthy,
And looks out for others

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
