My Hero
© By Grady L. Duncan 
3/2/04

Although he's just a legend,
someone I knew, not long ago,
he will always be my hero,
for I still love him so.
He never wore a cape,
and trunks with tights.
He never leaped over buildings,
nor engaged in awesome fights.

He never out ran a bullet,
fired from a high-powered gun,
and now, that I think of it,
I never did see him run.
He was just another man,
Not unlike you and me.
He never sought Earth's treasures,
nor fame, nor notoriety.

He worked with his hands,
his livelihood to attain.
Although he was intelligent,
he wasn't, a wizard, genius, or brain.
He was a kind and gentle man,
pure and honest from head to toe.
When he told me something,
I always knew it was so.

He made no great discoveries.
His name is not in history books.
He never won a contest,
for his muscles, nor his looks.
You see, he was more special,
to a small but growing lad.
What make him extra special,
was because he was my Dad!
