Wanna Be A Hero?

Do you want to save the day?
Do you want to be a hero?
Do you want to make her smile?
And feel that she’s been loved?
You can be a hero,
Though no one said you had to.
No one waits to award you.
But you can be one all the same.

You can be a hero.
Though it leaves you with an open door.
Though it breaks a part of you that was strong.
Though it pushes you to the cliff edge,
Where falling can be your next ride.
Though it makes you lose your hard-earned sobriety.
Though it leaves you feeling lesser a being.

You can be a hero.
You can make a whole show.
You can make her smile and feel loved.
But isn’t the price too high?
To leave a once-closed door forever open,
To take its keys and throw into a thick bush?
To awaken a sleeping past that had left you alone.
To let go a little bit too fast?

You can be a hero,
But the price is too high,
You can choose to be priceless not a priced gift.
