She’s seen these walls and they never change
Everything’s in its place
Her relationships are neatly arranged
Down to religion and race

And she says, “Here in my security
I don’t make a move unless my friends approve
I do what’s expected of me”

And as I grow older
And there’s so much that I do not know
I’m drawn to those who are bolder
And go where no one dare to go

~ excerpt from “Hero in Me” by Jeffrey Gaines
