Hero Today

This was actually adapted from a song I wrote, so it's very much more like song lyrics than a poem in that I haven't necessarily put of lot of thought into the structure, and the rhythm has a definite sway towards tempo and melody as opposed to metre. I hope that it translates well between the two mediums!

1. Hero Today

Would you judge me if I just broke down?

Just collapsed and laid here on the ground?

Would you lie with me?

'Cause sometimes it's all I can do just to breathe,

And sometimes I forget how to believe,

And sometimes just to breathe just isn't enough,

So would you?

 

I'm so scared of knowing,

Of finding out that I'm not strong enough, smart enough,

Just as it's too late.

 

And I'm so scared of showing

That I don't have the answers to everything,

Sometimes I want to run, run away.

 

So no...

I can't be your hero today.

 

If I were empty would you let me in?

Let me get right underneath your skin?

Be a part of you?

'Cause sometimes it's like I travel too far,

Can't get back, back to where you are,

And sometimes I just can't stand to feel alone,

So would you?

 

'Cause I'm so scared of knowing,

So scared of showing,

That sometimes I want to run, run away.

So no...

I can't be your hero today.

 

When I need saving, won't you pull me back

From this path that I've travelled,

My fears I've unravelled?

And I don't know how to put it into words,

But I hope that you'll hear me

And always be near me.

 

When all I'm needing is a friend nearby,

Just to hold me with no reasons why,

Would you be the one?

 

'Cause sometimes it's all I can do just to breathe,

And sometimes I forget how to believe,

And sometimes just to breathe just isn't enough.

So would you be the one, be my hero today?

So would you?
