Don'T Need A Hero - Poem by Janelle Morehart

I'm teetering over the edge
Someone save me
I'm falling over the edge
Gotta do this on my own
No hero today
No knight in shining armor
Don't want no Hercules
I can save myself
I will rescue my soul
I will fall over this edge
And I will fly
Fly oh fly so far away
Don't need a Prince Charming
No Elven man of the furthest woodlands
I'll save myself today
And the next day and the next
Don't give me a War Hero
Don't show me any Marines
I won't beg for the Army
I won't scream for the Navy
I am stronger than you think I am
I am smart as I need to be
I am no maiden in distress
I will do as I please
So don't give me any heroes
Don't throw me before the Gods
I am what I need to be
I will be the one
Who will rescue me
