ADMIRE

Who do you admire?
Or maybe these days
I should ask…
Who CAN you admire?

When we are forced
To make heroes of
Actors and sports stars,
Do any real heroes remain?

Of course they do…
But are they the ones
The newspapers proclaim?
Just look around…

The fireman who
Rushed toward danger
To save a child…
The woman who
Summoned the courage
To flee abuse…
Are they the same? No.
But both faced their fears
And in the end prevailed….
I’d admire them both &
Many more like them
