Time and the Hero

you don’t have to be
the hero in your own story
you can be the side kick
to the beauty in your mind

don’t have to cry the tears
don’t have to fly the years
to settle in
you take the wins
and put the daggers back

there’s no easy way
to hold it all in place
no proven list of answers
that the next in line can trace

the gift of others
always only brings
the tried and true
perfection in the stones that will not sing

and i’ve loved and lived
and seen the depths of glory

i’ve been the way of ethos
and i’ve stopped the massive tide

don’t have to be the hero
don’t have to be a star
it’s so good to be alive….

never save the day

no, i need one book that’s mine
but i refuse the champion’s line

don’t have to be the hero
of my own story
