|Ever wonder what a true hero was? Well i always do and this poem came to me during an Algebra 2 test. LoL Must have been those silly log problems.||
I look at all the warriors, And I look at all the strong.
The cocky and the arrogant, Never seem to get along.
They tell me they’ll protect me, They tell me that they care.
They call themselves my ‘hero’, And that they know no fear.
But yet, here comes the dragon, And here comes the fight.
I soon find myself alone. The men left in fear and fright.
And just before my fate comes, My own death drawing near.
I hear an unknown voice, And a young man standing here.
He stands before the dragon, No shield nor sword he bares.
He pulls out his little dagger, And gives off no worried air.
This young man is so small, He is not what I’d expect.
To be the one standing here, Risking his own to save my neck.
The Dragon comes, the Dragon glares, Death working at its will.
He turns to face the smaller man, Focusing on his next kill.
Yet the young man stands ready, He will fight to his End.
Willing to sacrifice his life, For one he never called a friend.
I stand and watch in awe, As he fights without shown fears,
And somehow he manages, To get the dragon down in tears.
I run over to the young man, And mutter out in glee.
"Why did you stay to save me, when you could have ran off free?"
He gives a weary look, And a tired sorta smile.
He looks into my eyes and tells me, "Runnings not my style."
He turns to walk away from me, With a limp, yet with a smile.
He never asked for something back, Just left to journey his lonely mile.
I watch him go in silence, Thinking deeply as he goes.
I guess I see who a hero is, My life to save he chose.
A hero isn’t someone big, Or someone with a sword and shield.
He isn’t someone arrogant, Or one who play fights in a field.
A hero is simply someone, Who would give his very breath,
Just to free another, From their own untimely death.
