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.

I'm fading.

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.
