Who’re your heroes?
My heroes are those people that, despite the pain inside their head, will roll on out of bed every
Get up, put their makeup on, pull on their jeans, stare at themselves in the mirror and say
‘Today, you. are. okay’
Not superman, or Spider-Man, Captain Marvel or Thor, but those people who marvel every day, that they haven’t killed themselves. That every day they don’t wake up in a cell with padded wall and no heating, eating frozen spoon fed dinners next to orderlies and sinners.
My heroes aren’t those people, who can fly a thousand miles an hour or lift a car above their head,
But those people that fight every. single. day.
Who’s mind will tread that fine line between sorrow, and despair, who pray to the heavens that just for once, please, make the battle fair.
That when their life is said and done, they’ll smile and see their conquest won.
These people are my heroes not for showmanship, fame, plumb or adieu, but for the silent battles won,
A thing that I could never do.
For Becki, Emily, Parm, and all of those who fight every day.
