Humble: College & Electric Youth “A Real Hero”

Mighty: Måns Zelmerlöw “Heroes”

Seek the hero inside
Reach as deep as the prize
Climb the steepest incline
At the peak
Seat astride
Oversee with delight
The black eagle in flight
And believe
You can reach the same height

Learn to speak with your eyes
Deepest secrets confide
Take a leap
Make it blind
Fall with grace
Brace the rise
Tease the breeze
Lace the skies
Free the leash
Free your mind
Reach as deep as the prize
For we each keep a hero inside

Such untreated essentials
So much reason to try
Not to bleed via stencil
To create unique lines
Turn and face demons
Make conversation polite
And you might take their names
To be kind
Find a space they can play
Free to writhe
Reach as deep as the prize
And unleash the potential instrumental to belief a hero prides

What’s stopping us
Who’s mocking us
Need futures be so ominous
Nonplussed we may be
But maybe number games are blocking us
Slumber days are glum delays
Reach in deep and play the wide receiver
Be the eager beaver to receive a hero’s welcome
Bridges do burn quickly
Less so strictly when you weld them

From zero to sixty
Feel nifty and blithe
Blow a kiss in your slipstream
And risk its reply
Frisk the brink and rethink its most fitting design
For the gift
Is within
Where it sits
For all time
Its one wish
To witness the black eagle in flight
With belief
It can breach the same skies
Reach as deep as the prize
For we each keep a hero inside

  1. Firstly, I’ve downloaded both of those uplifting songs and secondly the art!!! Gorgeous anime style, beautiful expression.

    Love this scream of encouragement and reinforcement of self confidence, self belief and, I don’t like the word “empowerment” but it sure is! I’m strutting around on the wings of a chicken because some mighty birds are disabled 🙃🛡⚔
