No. 2: Heroes

Heroes
We are
All someone's hero

Who
Have I
Worshipped for awhile

Many
Became my
Idols to admire

Some
Have fallen
Because they stumbled

Some
Fell away
Because I grew

Many
Remain on
My memory shelf

I
Dust them
Off to admire

I
Looked beyond
Their human foibles

Because
My own
Faults are many

Who
Am I
To judge another

When
Mine are
Dismissed so freely
