You are your own hero

Don’t wait to be rescued. Save yourself.

Lazarus Shatipamba

So I see that you are
waiting, waiting, waiting
for a gallant knight and shining armor
to come and rescue you.

You are waiting, waiting,
waiting impatiently
for a hero with no cape on
to come and save you
from between the jaws of a lion
and the claws of a tiger.

I see you’ve been waiting and waiting
for someone who will come to your aid.
But I tell you ‘they will never come’
for you are not a victim.

You are your own hero
You’ve got the cape, to fly, to escape
From whatever situation you find yourself in.
