Hero by AndromedaMarine

If you would ignore everything that they say
You'd know that some people are dying today
The children who've been alone all their lives
Are watching as everyone else passes by

The outcast amoung you is quiet inside
Deciding if people would notice she's died
She goes home to parents who don't understand
The feeling of loneliness she can't withstand

The tears in her eyes symbolize all she needs
The knot in her heart dissolving as she bleeds
But she thinks of you and her tears go away
A hero you've been and there's no need to pay

Heroes are made with the choices we get
With people like you we're no longer in debt
Didn't think you'd become what was needed for most
A hero you've been and you know not to boast

A life you had saved when you made the choice
To become a friend, to speak up, use your voice
She came back to school with a smile on her face
A person like you would be hard to replace

Each day we go on is a life that we've saved
Each trouble we've faced is a battle that's braved
And as we continue this path hand in hand
The heroes we've made will continue to stand

No one understands what she goes through alone
In silence she cries, can't survive on her own
She can't help but feel that there's no one who cares
But she thinks of you and God answers her prayers

A simple embrace was what brought her ahead
The feeling of safety drove away all the dread
And now we go on with the heroes we've made
Instead of the choices that cause us to fade

Heroes are made with the choices we get
With people like you we're no longer in debt
Didn't think you'd become what was needed for me
A hero you've been and now I can see

Each day we go on is a life that we've saved
Each trouble we've faced is a battle that's braved
And as we continue this path hand in hand
The heroes we've made will continue to stand

I walked alone with the troubles inside
The anger and pain wasn't all I denied
The choice that I made to open my heart
Created the hero, now I do my part

And each day I go on is my life that you saved
Each trouble I faced is a battle I braved
And as we continue this path hand in hand
We are the heroes who continue to stand.
