Danny The Dreamer Boyd
Some wear a mask, others a cape,
Some just pass this life unknown,
Some do leave you yet agape:
For being loved but doomed to be alone.
A hero can be anyone;
But it's such a burden that you accept:
To make up for all what you've done,
Or save some tears that aren't yet dropped.
You can simply wear a mask,
Or sink yourself in steel;
For they but in your presence bask:
As safe is all they feel.
When I was young I had
A hero of my own;
And when times got dark or bad:
I'm told how he'd into a hero grown.
So whether you have a gun,
Or just some tissues hold;
Whether you wrestle or run,
Or tell some tales untold.
You don't have to save the day,
Or even save the world;
Sometimes a simple 'Are you okay? '
Is better than to into fire've hurled.
Some wear a shirt, some wear a skirt,
Some are holding on although they idols are,
Some do but their best efforts exert:
To make others feel they're not that much afar.
'When I grow up I want to be like you.'
But the hero was hanging by a thread.
'It's what you believe in that makes you do what you do;
You need not some power to smiles spread.'
Some live so long, some die young,
Some are just like you and me,
Some are famous, some are unsung,
Some know nothing else to be.
Some are still alive, some are long dead,
Some live forever inside an unforgetting heart,
Some we've heard about or sometimes have read,
Some without knowing have been heroes from the start!
'I wake up every morn wondering where my hero'd gone.'
And though the hero lives inside, he is down below!
Ordinary to others, but to him he was an icon.
'I hope someday I'll be like him, just Somebody's Hero.'
