A Different Kind of Hero—A Children's Poem

By R. Renée Bembry

Heroes come in numerous sizes, various shapes, and can turn up just about anywhere. This is why musicians often write hero lyrics and authors include heroes in their stories. The ability to determine just what a hero is could be taxing because heroic characteristics vary from one hero to another. Besides, the hero could actually be a heroine which of course is the proper term for female heroism. At any rate, since so many characteristics revolve around acts of heroism, assigning a single definition to what a hero is continues to be somewhat tricky. It also means that definitions of heroism could vary from one person to another.

A different kind of hero

Could be a kitty cat

Who rubs you when you're lonely

And saves you from a rat


A different kind of hero

Could be a little dog

That barks away the strangers

And guides you through the fog


A different kind of hero

Could be a cotton bear

That comforts when you hold him

To let you know he cares


A different kind of hero

Could be a bumble bee

Whose legs keep spreading pollen

To help your garden grow


A different kind of hero

Could be your baby sis

Who giggles when you're gloomy

Brightening your heart to bliss


A different kind of hero

Could be a boy at school

Who says, "Please stop that teasing

'Cause teasing is not cool!"

A different kind of hero

Could be a mass of worms

Paving the way for plant roots

Under soil as they squirm


A different kind of hero

Could be most anything

Whose actions assist other

Folks just like you and me

Super-Heroine Mom

A Little Story by R. Renée Bembry


When I grow up, I want to be a super-heroine just like my mom.


Yeah. I know what you are thinking.

You are thinking no mom can be a superhero. I do not blame you if you do

not believe me, but I am not making

this up. My mom really is a superhero—

a goddess—a diva. That is why she can

do anything!


 I know because one day when she

was in the back yard planting seeds

she saw a big hole in her garden. A

huge rattlesnake came slivering out

of the hole. It was a bad brown snake

with black and white dots all over its

back. Its eyes were small but scary.


Its tongue bobbed in and out of its

mouth. It made mean hissing

sounds. I knew it was a rattlesnake

because its tail started shaking and clattering loudly.


 Even though the snake looked and

acted intimidating, my mom...Read more
