Hero


No one sits with him
he doesnt fit in
we feel like we do when we make fun of him
cause you want to belong
Do you go along
his pain is the price paid for you to belong
its not like you hate him or want him to die
but maybe he goes home and thinks suicide
or he comes back to school with a gun at his side
and a kindness from you might have saved his life

Heros are made when you make a choice
you could be a hero
heros do whats right
you could be a hero
you might save a life
you could be a hero
you could join the fight
for whats rights, for what right, for whats right

no one talks to her she feels so alone
shes in to much pain to survive on her own
the hurt she cant handle overflows to a knive
she writes on her arm
wants to give up her life
each day she goes on is a day thats shes brave
fighting the lie that giving up is the way
each moment of courage
her own life she saves
when she throws the pills out
a hero is made

you could be a hero
heros do whats right
you could be a hero
you might save a life
you could be hero
you could join the fight
for whats right, for whats right, for whats right

no one talks to him about how he lives
he thinks that the choices he makes are just his
doesnt know hes a leader with hte way he behaves
and others will follow the choices hes made
he lives on the edge
hes old enough to decide
his brother who wants to be him is just nine
he can do what he wants
because its his right
the choices he makes change a nine year olds life

Heros are made when you make a choice

    I like it Sara, it was really splendid and true to, we never know when we have a chance to help or even save someones life, and when we do, we sometimes don't even realize it, this is a good way to remind people that not all heros run around wearing capes and tights, not all heros have super powers, and not all heros go driving around in expensive one of a kind cars fighting evil geniuses, real heros are the people you meet in everyday life, the ones who really make a difference. That includes us and should be a reason why we always try to do the right thing no matter what consequences, and no matter how the other people around us think about us for doing it, This was really good sara, if I was an english teacher, i'd give it an A++ (Report) Reply

    This is very true, its easy to say we should all do whats right, but no one wants to put themself at risk.
