Daily Prompt – Hero

When I was much, much younger

I felt a certain kind of empty hunger

Wishing that I would not become a zero

Instead I strove to become a hero

Picking out who I wanted very much to be

I modeled myself after the things I’d see

Hoping one day that I might become a knight

Doing my best in very way to get it right

A knight is a servant of both God and country

Who lives to serve others and his family

I put all that I was into this special kind of quest

Once or twice very nearly laid to eternal rest

As I now look back on all of my many days

I can only pray that God will look well on my ways
