We All Need Our Heroes

At what stage do we pass the age for heroes?
I’d say never:
To be more than we’ve been, we must believe
It’s possible

Intensely personal, it is; as even
Imperfections
Become a part of why that persons shines
So much for us

Be it in music or in words; in love or
Understanding –
Be they a he or she or not, nor audience
Commanding –

At what point do we pass the place of needing
Elevation?
In what reality are we not bound
To everyone?

For we all need our heroes, we all need our
Inspirations;
To recognize the good in us that some would
Have us miss

Although, were we to follow cynics home, we might
Discover
A closet, in the back somewhere, containing their
Own idols
