No one sees them helping the old man cross the
No one sees them give the child a crust of
bread to eat.
There visits to the needy go unnoticed by the news.
As do the times they hold the hands of
those who have the blues.
They're nobody's hero, in the normal sort of way,
except to all the strangers that they
helped along the way.
Now, an actor for example, may play the hero's part;
but no one seems to understand he's no hero
in his heart.
The big screen shows his acting skills, but not the man inside.
We know not of his human ills, that Tinsel
town would hide.
Yes, he's rich and famous and the girls all flock
But his secret acts would shame us and
cause us all to frown.
For the world discards real heroes, who are clean and wholesome men.
And replaces them with zeros, well
disguised as gentlemen.
So look for men of goodness in your quest for heroes grand,
avoid the ones who wrap themselves in fame
The good and pure and honest are seldom well renowned,
they are simple in their living but their
examples are profound.
They're nobody's heroes, but you'd love to see them round.
When sometime you are lonely, lost, or just
plain feeling down.
