Real Life Heroes

It's a common affliction
Heroes, mostly fiction
Egos inflated
Media created
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.

    Great write about those 'heroes' we never hear about. This has great descriptiveness and rhyming throughout.

    I appreciate this so very much Vince. It is so true. Being a real live hero not just media created is in this world akin to a trout swimming upstream fight every step of the way just to be able to simply seed life again. Thanks for being a true friend Vince. Agape, Moses
