It's a common affliction
Heroes, mostly fiction
Not real heroes at all
Real life heroes throughout our nation
Doing it all without the sensation
It's the everyday Mom doing all that she can
Raising her family and clings to her man
It's the everyday Dad working hard for a living
Being very supportive and always forgiving
It's the young soldier serving his country each day
So the freedoms we have won't be stolen away
The young girl with a child living alone
The teen who will not accept what he doesn't condone
The drinker who battles his addiction each day
The abused who had the courage to just walk away
These are real life heroes, the ones to admire
Not the ones created by the media's fire.
