HEROES – they come in all shapes and sizes,
They don’t have to have super powers, capes, or disguises.
For a HERO is defined as someone who…
Is admired for their courage and nobility too.
Some are legendary, famous, seen on TV,
But most are everyday people like you and me.
HEROES are folks, who give of themselves,
They’re willing to risk their life for somebody else.
They’re always brave and act in spite of fear,
They are humble even though they’re revered.
They dare to be strong when others are weak,
If the crowd is scared silent, HEROES will speak.
In the midst of evil, HEROES stand for good,
Even when they don’t want to, they do what they should.
They face personal loss and self-sacrifice,
They willingly and honourably pay the price.
They are quick to help those in need,
When no one will go, HEROES will lead.
They protect the lowly and befriend the lost,
They defend them ‘til the end, no matter the cost.
When put in a tough situation we all have a choice,
To take on the narrative of a HERO’s voice.
Yes, you mom and dad; you young and old,
You sitting there, have a chance to be bold.
You the one who believes you are nothing,
Shake off that thought because indeed you are something.
For we are not just a bunch of ones and zeroes,
We are human beings called to be HEROES.
