You See a Hero

You do not see me tremble with fear.
You do not see me shed a tear.
You see a hero.

You do not see me have nightmares.
You do not see me when no one cares.
You see a hero.

You do not see me miss my baby girl.
You do not see my thoughts begin to swirl.
You see a hero.

You do not see me dream of a better day.
You do not see my faith begin to sway.
You see a hero.

You do not see me with shallow heart.
You do not see me slowly fall apart.
You see a hero.

You do not see me take cover, hitting the ground.
You do not see me when no one is around.
You see a hero.

You do not see me when I start to freeze.
You do not see me beg, “Please God,” on my knees.
You see a hero.

You do not see me when bombs set off the alarms.
You do not see me with a friend dying in my arms.
You see a hero.

You do not see me wish for my one and only.
You do not see me when I feel lonely.
You see me as a hero.

You do not see me when I am crimson with shame.
You do not understand, this is not done for fame.
Know me as a protector of our land; do not see a hero.

~S. R. Craig, 2011
