‘Heroic self-sacrifice’
He heard screams
He jumped in
Without hesitation
He drowned
She lived

Did he just swap
a life for a life?

Or did he change the world?
Touching so many hearts
Changing so many lives
Changing the world
One self-sacrifice
at a time

If he hadn’t jumped in
If he hadn’t in that moment
She may have drowned
He would have lived

The world would have carried on
The same
No hearts touched
No lives changed

A boy jumped into the Thames to save a woman and drowned (she was saved by someone else). His mum was on TV saying how he was a hero.
