my room's a mess after trying to rummage and find a wire to get a/v into my computer.   i thought, "there's got to be a way," but instead of that song, i'm doing another one of her songs.  "hero," because as i was down on myself about the mess i made of my room and about the failure to find a way to get a/v into my computer with the audio already synchronized, i thought to myself, "i need people to give me a break from myself".  then i thought of how mariah explained the song "hero" with a naive instruction to "be your own role model".  that is no advice for kids and adolescents.

my heros, role models, are josh and jd since high school. josh lectured me about self-love, jd was my 'something to be'.

there's no hero when you look inside your heart
if you've had no one who made you what you are
there's no 'xamples how to be, so choose no role
with no model, no hero, you'll find no way

cuz when a hero comes along with the way you wanna own
then your task is well-defined as the goal that makes you try
and when you feel like hope is gone, it's a lie, you've got it all
then you'll likely give thanks to what your hero built in you

it's a long road to my place of mental-growth
and i'll reach it as the man i made from goals
i can't find love til i see it in myself
til all men who i've esteemed live in my spirit

cuz when a hero comes along with the way you wanna own
then your task is well-defined as the goal that makes you try
and when you feel like hope is gone, it's a lie, you've got it all
then you'll likely give thanks to what your hero built in you

oh no, lord knows 'be your own role model'
is nothing any kid needs said today
hold on, your esteem will sparkle and shine
just mind the way
