About the Poem

This poem describes how I feel about certain people in my life. It conveys the message of friendship through a hero's eyes. This poem is dedicated to all those unsung heroes out there who don't consider themselves a hero, yet people in their life do. I believe that the unsung heroes in the world today are one of the most important kind of people.

My Hero

You may not consider yourself,
But you may very well be
A leader, a winner,
For all the world to see.

In the eyes of others,
You are a martyr.
You have received recognition,
And you have worked harder.

But why ? Why all the praise?
I have done nothing but kept my word,
To a dear friend who needed me,
In every incidence that occurred.

But friend, I tell you, you are a hero.
You helped me see the light.
When I had no eyes,
You saved me, and you were my sight.
