What Is A Hero?

A hero is someone who moves beyond fear
Toward battles his heart has to win
Who conquers not so much with forceful bravado
But by summoning strength from within

A hero is someone whose sense of what's right
Propels him as nothing else could
And when he performs beyond all his dreams
It is selflessly for other's good

It is not within him to carry revenge
Nor to boast of victories won
But quietly face every new challenge
Doing what needs to be done

And even if fate deals him less than fair hands
He plays them with fairness of heart
For it is an inherent goodness within
That sets a hero apart
