More angry venting and disappointment, kind of like the poem i posted last night 'A Beacon for the Demented' kind of talks about the same person...

Hero's are Deceiving

What happens when your Hero fails you?

You live as you see them doing
Worship the ground they walk on
You see all they've been through
And you figure if they can be happy
Then you can too

You start eating less meat because you know
They gave it up
You do your best to smile and get good grades
They do
And so you know it must be right

And then you learn your role model never made it to 'Life'
Drugs, sex, & rock-n-roll
Are the life they hide away

So again you follow in their footprints
Vicodin and Vodka make life a lot easier
Cutting and smoking help the pain to fade away

If you hero does it
It can't be wrong
...can it?

  wow... courtney this was really deep.. I don't even think I can find the words to describe the awesomeness of this poem.. it was like taking a two day nap... which is a good think for me... I truely think this was one of your best pieces... i really really like it alot.. your words were put together so well that it flowed all by itself... and the whole role model thing is probably something ever one can relate to.

  WOW! This is an amazing write. I mean that is so sad... Yeah we all have role models and everything they do we want to do too.. But sometimes you got to draw a line... You no what I mean. If you don't think its right don't do it. But if you do then of course do it.. But everything has consequences... Sorry for my babbling... I really wonder who it is... Cause I no a couple of people whoes hero did that too...
SOo good write...

  I wonder who your "hero" is. Sometimes it can be easy to slowly build up such an admiration for one that they do become your hero... but hero's die. They make mistakes, quit their jobs... and let you down. I liked the way you told a story in the poem. It makes stories more interesting an poems less boring. :-)

  I liked this. it was a different form of writting which is refreshing. I just have a few questions...who is this role model or "hero" is it a lover? a friend? a parent? a sibling?

  daddy like. we see these people, many of whom are miserable morons, but becuase they have a spotlight on them we for some reason believe that they have life under control, when in fact life has them under control. i definitely enjoyed. side note: it's spelled "vicodin"...i used to get 150 ever 2 weeks, so i learned. great poem!
