Bravery shown above and beyond,
The call of duty or a symbolic bond,
No ego involved, no hidden agenda,
Helping, but not because it’ll be remembered.
Just a display of the finest of traits,
We can display, as the endangered await,
As a job, for your family, a stranger or cat,
There’s beauty in an unselfish, heroic act.
There are countless people who are totally deserving of the title Hero, each one of their selfless gestures of heroism, have my complete respect.
It truly humbles me to see the human spirit in all its glory, devoid of ego, just championing all that’s good in the World.
Then there are the less recognised heroes, the single parents working multiple jobs to give their children a better future, the people who give their last pound to help others in need… and this list goes on.
Heroes of all shapes, sizes, hues and backgrounds, thank you for your generosity and sacrifice in the face of adversity, and for making this World a better place.
Love and Respect always,
