An American Hero

Robert Portella is a cherished hero
Everyone certainly agrees
He is a New York firefighter
And takes his job very seriously

When the 911 tragedy took place
In New York City, USA
This man did what he could
There is so much about him to say

He put the public and duties first, you see
As the firefighters are known to do
They put their lives right on the line
They are fierce, loyal and true

The shock was felt across the world
And while most of us were in pain
So were these wonderful heroes
Some families won’t them see again

All of Yukon welcomed this hero
Enfolded him in their arms
And there was a little girl as well
With so much sensitivity and charm

The two came together one day
This little girl and this man
A hero he was truly declared
For the values on which he stands!

Dead Heroes More Heroes

Where many the mother did grieve for her dead son
The heroes of long gone battles that were lost or won
They believed they were fighting for freedom and National pride
But was it for freedom that they fought and they died
For their sacrifices out of them heroes were made
And nowadays in their honour there's many a parade
And many young boys them wish to emulate
Dead heroes more heroes seem to create
The politicians and Government Ministers heap on them praise
Yet from the dead with their words them they cannot raise
For politicians a false show of Nationalistic pride
The nationalist and patriotic majority they must keep on side
Bands playing and patriotic speeches that and nothing more
For people who died years ago on a far shore.

I Sing Not

I sing not of the celebrated I sing of the unsung
And I sing not of the legends in the days when I was young
I sing of the quiet achievers my toasting glass to them I raise
Of every unsung hero or heroine I'll gladly sing their praise
I sing not of the billionaire or the very wealthy few
Many do sing their praises so tell us something new
Your heroes and heroines are celebrities and that does suit me fine
But you can have your heroes though your heroes are not mine,
I sing not of the people we read about and hear of every day
I leave others to sing their praises and their admiration to them to pay
I sing of the humanitarians who to help others go out of their way
For their unselfishness they deserve more recognition that would be fair to say
Than singing of the praises of the legends old and young
I would far prefer to sing of the honourable unsung.

When your hero falls

when your hero falls from grace, all fairytales are uncovered myths exposed. pain magnified and the greatest pain discovered.

you taught me to be strong, but im so confused to see you so weak.
you said, never to give up and it hurts to see you welcome defeat.

when your hero falls, so do the stars and so does the perception of tomorrow
without my hero, this is only me alone. to deal with my sorrows.

your heart ceases to work and your soul is not happy at all.
what are you expected to do when your only hero falls?
