They fight for the people
for rights, for food, for safety
just regular people like you and I
they wouldn’t stand out in a crowd
but they stand out in spirit
speaking for those who remain quiet
standing for those who have taken
the knee of giving up
oh how they sacrifice everything
their lives down to the last piece of food for others
giving up their warm clothing to the youth
while they themselves freeze in the cold night
yes they are the real heroes
they go unnamed and ask for nothing in return
but will live forever in our hearts.
