SILENT HEROES Poem by Ray Lucero


Today, super heroes are as popular as ever
They seem unlimited, smart, indestructible
With superpowers and minds oh, so clever
Everyone looks to them in times of trouble

Unseen and unheard stands the silent hero
An every-man, with no desire to stand out
A man who wields no knife, sword or bow
A caring man, who’s not just another echo

Rock-steady, intent on caring for his family
Personal, communal or on a global scale
A great man to those that value integrity
Who believe their champion cannot fail

Super-men are just a string of empty zeroes
What we need today are more silent heroes
