One Of My Hero's



I have many Hero's
Some young some old
Some teach way of speaking
while others show
This one Hero I've watched as a kid
I've studied his Character and things that he did
Like how he was a provider
and a wonderful dad
I even watched the way he dressed
and notice that crooked smile that he had
he was a leader not a follower
an eagle not a crow
he didn't pull things up he planted things
in order for them to grow
he took care of his mother, and siblings
sometimes going out on a limb
yes! I have many Hero's
and My uncle Richard A. Johnson is one of them.
