Togolese breaks down what it means to be a hero and how patience is a great quality to have and that we can all be heroes in one shape or another. Clips from stories of prophets & Spider-man 2. The story of Ayyub in Islam translates to the story of Job.

lyrics

HERO

Heroes of patience
sabali I'm waiting
patient of the game
doc Dre debatin'
whats the difference between me and you?
Said F the police and his dreams he pursued
I understand they out here sniffin' like snoop
its a dog eat dog there's more power than you
but spiritually you gettn' me, there's no limit to you
We are truly an oddity our soul as commodity
A person wit great
or brave acts and fine qualities
a definition of hero, patience for an odyssey
sick like job on the job for the lord
but I still push on and I can't get sold
even on the middle passage through the gates of no return
till my body passes on preserved through an urn
I will continue to teach to those who wanna learn
a heroes always needed a heroes always yearned
H:(What they need!x3)
V2:
Yea a second longer
with each passin' minute I'm growing stronger
Feed me injustice or feed me beats
like police and blacks I put work in the streets
uhn now that's a double entendre
prison for new slaves no reference to Kayne
Yeesus what we need is Jesus
or the prophet Muhammad
while they prophet off of locking
innocence divide with ignorance
conquer citywide while denied my visitin--rights
man does that even sound right?
how we can't come together like a hook and a sound bite
Now matter how dark we gotta remain bright
A hero is what they need we the last of a dying breed
With the patience off Ayyub we can sow the seeds
watch Heroes like you and me branch like trees
