She smiles, she laughs, she hurts,               


          She cries,


She holds it all deep inside                         


She lives, she flies, she soars,


She dies.


She is the one I idolize


She loves, she gives, she cares,


She is


The one I know I will someday




A hero, a mother, a child, a soul,


          The woman inside of me.



            The Hero In Me
