When heroes break

There comes a moment where your heroes break

and they shatter into tiny specs of light.

There comes that moment where you see

heroes are just like you, like me;

the only thing that sets them apart

is that you carry them in your heart

and even when they break

even as imperfect form they’re still facets of the sun

and through their cracks seeps star dust;

a tiny flaw that makes their shine more bearable to us.

There comes a moment where your heroes break

and you just wonder in a daze how blessed you are

to have touched a little bit of the sun without getting scorched.
