Heroes must fall

No room for those who perform
"nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love"
And, at times,
Are human enough to err

We'd rather sculpt heroes,
Carry them high above our heads
So we can pretend we can't reach them,
Can't do what they do.

As the burden grows heavier,
And we, as they,
Falter under the weight
We drop them by the wayside as sinners.
