A New Hero

Sun, 08/25/2013 - 11:43 -- Kosi J.

You’re waiting for someone

Because you can’t do this yourself

Waiting for someone to come save you

From the thoughts inside your head

 

Always there

Never changing

The thoughts

Inside your head

 

So you ask why no one ever helps you

Clearly in so much pain

Day in and day out,

Does no one ever care?

 

You’re waiting for someone

Because you can’t do this yourself

Waiting for someone to come save you

From the children at the school

 

Always there

Never changing

The words

Inside your head

 

They laugh and mock you

With there crude friends

Creating pain for you

To carry for a long time

 

You’re waiting for someone

Because you can’t do this yourself

Waiting for someone to come save you

From your own family

 

Always there

Never changing

The bruises

On your arms

 

Why can’t they love you?

You never did them any harm

You always loved them

Why can’t they stop hurting you?

 

You’re waiting for someone

Because you can’t do this yourself

Waiting for someone to come save you

From the situation

 

How many people are there,

That could be helping you

But instead turn a blind eye

Because caring is too painful

 

You’re like one of the millions of refuges

Running away from persecution

The only thing done wrong, was being born

But only point five percent are saved.

 

You’re waiting for someone

Because you can’t do this yourself

Waiting for someone to come save you

Why can’t you do this yourself?

 

You could be the one to help them

The ones hurt at home

The ones bullied at school

The ones with thoughts inside their heads

 

You could be that little bit of hope they need

Because someone’s got to do it

So why can’t it be you?

You could be that little bit of hope they need

 

You’re waiting for someone

Because they can’t do it themselves

Waiting for someone to come save them

Why can’t you go help?

 

You could be your own hero

Be there for yourself

Stick up for others

Who need a bit of hope?

 

Be your own hero

Be theirs as well

Why can’t you do it?

I know you can.
