Hero (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #10)   Leave a comment

I want to be a hero
I want to strive forward and face my fears
I want to do it so I can be better
Not for the admiration of my peers

I want the world to be a better place
So I will be the symbol of my ideas
I’ll bring my dreams from void and space
And through my action, make them real

A hero isn’t a hero through gifts and strength
Or because he’s the one who people call
No, he’s a hero because when he sees difficulty
He rushes forward and gives it his all

And life is difficulty, a forever fight
One we will never truly win
But in the darkness I’ll be the light
I want to be a hero, it’s time I begin.
