How would you define the word hero? Can an everyday person be a hero?
Hollywood Theatre Studio Exploration students created a video poem in response to the topic of heroism. Poet and activist, Isaiah Spriggs helped guide the writing potion and narrated the final poem.
I am a Hero
By: Open Middle School
A hero is someone who fights for good,
who helps people in need,
all without needing to receive a reward.
I became a hero when I stopped bullies from hurting people.
My powers as a hero are to make people
feel good about themselves.
I stand up for people who can’t stand up for themselves.
When I got my powers I realized I could help people that really needed it.
I stand up for those who have lost their voice to fear.
As a hero I stay strong because no one understands me.
As a hero I’ve fought against my brother
and his fists that sometimes hit me.
As a hero I learned that I’m invincible.
As a hero I never give up because I enjoy helping others.
Everyone needs to be saved from something….
….before it’s too late.
