Emmanuel Oduro


You Are A Hero


I read your story
You deserve a place in our history
‘Cos your dedication to our cause
Surely, shortened our course.
You are a hero.

The world read your stunt-studded story.
All reckon it a remarkable piece of history,
A splendid display of bravery
Exploits explicitly exemplary
You are a hero.

You are a perfect role model
To our youth, an inspiration
You will, assuredly, inform their aspirations
Markedly molding their morals
You are a hero

In the Hall of Fame,
We give you a place.
A place only Greats grace
You pillar worthy to be fabled
You are a hero

You deserve a monument
‘Cos your role was momentous
You rightly earned those memorials
For deeds that supplied the momentum
That eventually earned us our expected moment
You are a hero.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
