I Call Him A Hero


He who's rich yet not proud,
He who's humble yet not easily swayed by the crowd,
He who's influential yet dislikes corruption and fraud,
He who's powerful yet doesn't boss around,
I calll him a hero -
a superhero and a half!

He who's weak but seldom stumbles,
He who's conscience never crumbles,
He who's often hurt but never grumbles,
He who's famous yet faithful like the knight of times ancient,
He who's reputable yet reasonably patient,
I call him a hero -
a superhero and a half!

He who's vulnerable yet likes caring,
He who's got a little yet loves sharing,
He who's always under pressure yet loves sacrificing for others,
He who likes to look and listen and learn more than giving orders,
I call him a hero -
a superhero and a half!

He who's ever-conscious of the needs of mankind,
He who's just and fair and kind -
whose conscience does not follow the wind
but his soul as steadfast and sharp his mind -
who's open-minded,
who's open-hearted,
who's open-handed,
That kind is really hard on earth to find,
yet, if only one on planet earth there is
Then I'll call him a hero -
a superhero and a half!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
