Photo Challenge #165 – I’m a Hero.


Image: Kyla @ Deviantart

I’m a hero you know,

I was told so yesterday.

I did ponder the matter for some time

Then decided to accept my fate

I am a hero.

We come in all shapes and sizes,

It’s not a one size fits all I’ll have you know.

The long and the short of it is

The world is round, made round to go around

And so, it is with us heroes.

Those of you who do not know me will

Nod and say that man is obviously a hero.

To those who do know me will take what I say

With a grain of salt!

Why am I a hero?
Have I saved the world?


Have I jumped tall buildings in a single bound?


I am me, unique and almost loveable.

It’s what makes us heroes, heroes!

    This is great Michael. The religion of the word hero is very powerful abs Inlike how you say hero’s are all unique. But also there is this jesting feeling in this poem. He’s a hero because some one told him so and he decided that he fits the description. 🙂
