I Need A Hero - Poem by Janelle Morehart

Where has all the truth gone?
And where are all its ghosts?
Isnt there someone please
Who can be honest with me
Free me please
Slowly I fade and I die
As the storm rages
And the lightining splits the sea
There's fire in my blood
Come take me away
I'll wait till the morning light
Be my hero
Take me away
Upon a blazing white steed
Far over the mountains
In the purple green haze of forest
Show me truth
With word and deed
Give me my freedom
Tell me where the truth has gone
Will you be the one to say?
I need you
I need truth
I need a Hero
