The voice of the Common Heroes

Do you see me?

Perhaps you didn’t look hard enough.

Look past the uniform and you’d see

Someone who wants to be noticed

For more than just their title.

 

Do you see me?

Look hard enough and you’ll see

Behind that ceramic smile.

The one placed there to please,

To hide the pain so I can do my job.

 

Do you see me?

Sometimes I think people forget that I’m human.

They’d rather view me a super hero,

Always saving the day.

Can’t you see I’m flawed?

 

Do you see me?

I’m just a person

Trying to fulfill my calling

But I need comfort too.

Before I burn out.
