What would you risk

To save someone else?

I convince myself each day

That I'm brave enough to

Save someone else and play the hero

I imagine myself taking a bullet

For a loved one

Or willingly sacrificing myself

For another

I picture myself tackling

A bigger man with a gun

To save my family

I can see myself running

Into a burning building

To carry my little sister out

I would rather be stabbed

In a mugging

Then my little brother

I convince myself I would

Do all of these things for my family

But I hope that I won't be forced

To do any of them
