What is a hero?

Is it a keeper of the peace?

Or someone willing to do whatever it takes?

Maybe it is a little bit of both.

So then, what makes them a hero?

Is it the sacrifices they are willing to make?

The lives spared in the heat of battle?

Or the desire to protect those they love?

The path they take is one that shapes who they are.

Because heroes are not born,

They are made.
My opinion on what being a hero is.

You're really talented, GuardianOfImagine! I'm so happy I found this poem here on dA: I think everybody should read it. :)

I especially love the last two lines! In all stories, heroes are always said to only follow their destiny, to not have an actual choice. But according to you, they're not born as heroes, but becomes heroes as they live, depending on the actions they make, and the way they treat people, and the hard choices they're forced to make. It's brilliant! :D

You have no idea how big my smile was after reading your feedback. I have a knack for making those characters who come across those point in their lives where everything that happens after is based on a last minute decision. I see them as heroes no matter what their personality is or how difficult it would be to be around them. They earned their place, their title. Nothing can take that away.

Thanks for the review. :D

You have no idea how big my smile was after having read your poem. :D I look forward to reading more of your writing, especially since you've made me very interested in your heroes, who are not of the common kind that we all know so well from countless stories. :)
