Hero


Loved today,
Gone tomorrow.
God today,
Citizen tomorrow.

Saved a life,
Urban soldier.
Praised today,
Yet worthless tomorrow.

Worship, love,
Praise, a hero.
Forgotten, useless
Normal, neighbor.

Forgotten by the world,
All has faded...except for one.
The on life saved, will always remember.
You are always, my hero.

and mine in the wine cup, just
