Rookie (12-18-1992 / San Pedro, California)

Hero


Loved today,
Gone tomorrow.
God today,
Citizen tomorrow.

Saved a life,
Urban soldier.
Praised today,
Yet worthless tomorrow.

Worship, love,
Praise, a hero.
Forgotten, useless
Normal, neighbor.

Forgotten by the world,
All has faded...except for one.
The on life saved, will always remember.
You are always, my hero.

And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
