April poems: Hero

The last time I saw him was Oct, 90, since then he disappeared

Disappeared, and never seen again

Do you remember the disappearance of dad? yes, he was like dad

I don't think I will ever have the guts to describe him, but he's a hero

A hero that left his hometown for the sake of peace

Thinking nothing would happen they locked him, to be one of them

He couldn't find a reason of what it means to kill his people

Handed in retirement request, the next day he was gone abroad

Never looked back, now I understand that he's a hero

There will be no one like him that has graced that nation than him

Yet, they didn't treat him fair, and as I put it heroes come, and go

But he will be remembered for his dedication towards his people

That hero is none other than the pilot who fought for peace, and left when he was asked to destroy the people he bring peace to

To me he is a hero!
