When Your Hero Falls - Poem by Mariah Smith

when your hero falls from grace, all fairytales are uncovered myths exposed. pain magnified and the greatest pain discovered.

you taught me to be strong, but im so confused to see you so weak.
you said, never to give up and it hurts to see you welcome defeat.

when your hero falls, so do the stars and so does the perception of tomorrow
without my hero, this is only me alone. to deal with my sorrows.

your heart ceases to work and your soul is not happy at all.
what are you expected to do when your only hero falls?

    Even heros fall. All they need is a little help to get them on their feet. N (Report) Reply
