“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Unlikely Hero

He gets scared and nervous too as I can see him gulping his Adam’s apple and clenching fingers; surely he experiences bouts of loneliness and is pretty insecure and impatient like everyone else. He is stubborn like a seven year old. Against all odds, he has never quit. That’s not much heroic though but certainly he is a hero.  












I caught you lost in search of hope;
when rest of the world was asleep,
can read your expressions on the face;
trying hard not to break and weep.

I’ll be always there, right next to you;
when you’re trying to hide your pain,
under the scars that you never show;
and I’ll be always there to explain.

So don’t you ever forget;
that I’ll be always there,
‘cause you’re unlikely hero to me;
in happiness and in despair.
Can count me in when tears roll out;
I won’t be the one you gotta live without,
when your fears fill you with doubt;
I’ll be there, ‘cause you’re all I am about.

But I am scared, and you’re not aware;
if there is no tomorrow in my hand,
I still want you to be the hero;
and I hope you understand.

Been familiar with all your flaws;
that you choose not to tell and hide,
but I want you to know that;
accepted you as you are, out and inside.

Despite knowing your worst mistakes;
and exploring your deepest scars,
you’re unlikely hero to me;
for whom I can keep wishing on the stars.
Can count me in when tears roll out;
I won’t be the one you gotta live without,
when your fears fill you with doubt;
I’ll be there, ‘cause you’re all I am about.
