    Fallen Heroes

    I'm older than my heroes,
    They all died so young,
    But things seemed so different,
    Before all this time had run,
    Like sand that moves so swiftly,
    All my promises were lost,
    Those you put faith in, they can fail you,
    As I found out, to my cost.
    I'm more tired than those idols,
    The invincible and strong,
    Now all resting in their heavens,
    That I wanted, all along,
    The trappings of divinity,
    Fade fast, and fall apart,
    Just like those fallen heroes,
    I placed in my heart.
