What it means to be a Hero


Many people love a Hero. They think them brave and fine
They say “I wish another would walk this path of mine.”

But really you’re a Hero if you can only sing
and see a little good in every living thing;

if you can pray to God above with faith within your heart
and in simple living you can only do your part

You truly are a Hero, if you can laugh and smile
and make somebody happy for just a little while.

If you can do a little good to help this world along,
the bravest thing that you can do is smile when things go wrong.
