Everyday Heroes

Another poem this week! Two in a row! How lucky are you? 😉

This week I decided to share a poem about a hero, I’m not talking about Superman, Spider-Man, or Batman…I’m talking about an ordinary man. We can all be heroes in our own way. I believe it’s our decisions that make us admirable, and the toughest decisions are what make us brave. So I say cheers to all the ordinary heroes out there who help others without being asked, who made someone smile today, who chose to put someone else first. I love and respect that! Remember, if you have the choice to be the villain or the hero…always be the hero!

The Everyday Hero

He doesn’t fly through the air or run faster than a train.

He doesn’t parade around and cause a scene.

His enemies are life and death,

And the plagues he fights are lost souls in distress.

The Everyday Hero does not ask for praise

He would never wear a cape, even if you begged

For a cape would garner more attention

And an everyday hero prefers to stay hidden

In the shadows,

Where his identity is safe.

No thanks needed, just a promise

That you’ll try to do better than the day before

That you’ll try to be excellent that much more.

He doesn’t want your admiration

He just wants you to smile awhile.

Thanks for reading! I wish you all a wonderful weekend, and if you’re in the States, a super long weekend! Enjoy!
