My Hero

In my dream
I met my hero
It was electric.
I immediately wanted to sing
all his praise.
Although he acknowledged me
He remarked I was too excited.
To me it was a wake-up call
Nobody should be glorified
to the point we lose ourselves in it.
I woke up with a more balanced view
Heroes are heroes
but heroes bleed like we do
and we all can be heroes too
we just need to find our hero shoes.

  1. Something we would do well to remember. Not only can we be heroes but that we are heroes. Nice job in conveying that but also in drawing that realization to us having ‘hero shoes’ and that in putting on these shoes, we are heroes. Cheers!
