A Hero’s Origin Story


What makes you think there’s time left
For extra breaths
As if the answer simply comes next
Without focused action
Now that urgency is in-demand
‘Cause life’s no longer on-demand
What else is left to understand
But moving forward hand in hand

You already know that if you don’t pivot
You’ll die much sooner than later
This bowl you’re hitting won’t bring change
The way acting will
Not something you can pray for, but work for
Toward more soaring with less deploring
Your own mirror’s gaze
Recognize these limited days
And become the hero whom changed your ways
