Poem: The Hero

The Hero

Look no further!

The harder you look,

The more disappointed you become;

Look no further afield.

Stop searching out there for a hero,

Look within, yes, within;

Look hard, for you will find:


Inner strength,



You don’t need another hero.

For within you, the hero lies.

    Nice flow, and somewhat idealistic and romantic with a tendency to preach.
