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
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
In what reality are we not bound
To everyone?

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

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