Not all heroes wear a cape

But they’re bold and courageous indeed;

They fight for justice and for what is right

As they conduct heroic deeds.

A hero will many times sacrifice

Their comfort or even their life,

To ensure the safety of others

And to prevent any further strife.

But we should refrain from being a hero

And stop playing the role of God,

When we try to prevent the inevitable

When God needs to not spare the rod.

Heroic deeds are so honourable

When a stance for truth is made;

When God’s word is honoured and boldly proclaimed

And where integrity will remain.

A true hero will wear the badge

Of sincerity, bravery and grace,

Since their selfless and their noble deeds

Are respected and embraced.

Some heroes have four legs and a tail

So loyal and man’s best friend,

With a love so unconditional

Beyond what we can comprehend.

As they would lay down their lives to protect

With a heart so sincere and pure;

Filled with godly characteristics

With a love that endures.

But a hero is never glamorous

Since there’s a price to always pay,

When strength and determination

Will expose all wicked ways.

Our true supernatural hero

Sacrificed His life for our betterment,

And rose again defeating His foes

A hero we’ll never forget.
