We all know
Heroes who either
Made other people's lives
Better or gave their own
For a better future.
Many heroes were famous
People who were known by all.
As my car spins off the course and
Scarlet red blood stains my jeans,
I don't feel pain-
I just feel very tired.
Moments later I wake up
On a cot, someone from
The ambulance standing above me,
Like an angel.
Before he says anything, he whispers,
"You'll be okay," and when I look into his eyes,
I see kindness and warmth that I have
Never seen in a stranger's eyes before,
And today, I know who my hero will be.
