You aren’t a hero…

My old poem/2017/ You aren’t a hero God-alike, extra-strong Hercules You are “an average Joe” Holding champagne and Sinking in self-discovery, pretentious chat And a blurred haze of memories.  Today you are epic, almost perfect  Tomorrow you are classical And by the time I finish my poem – Antique.  You aren’t a hero Until you know the answers – What my heart desires… You are a fish that can’t swim.
