Stop making heroes

Stop making heroes
of those who do not deserve it
Putting them on pedestals
they themselves could never reach.

Stop making heroes
of those whose mouths utter words of war,
their glory is their shame
They have no dignity.

Stop making heroes
of those who speak with ‘wisdom’
but seek only their own gain
and profit from the poor.

They are not heroes.
They are not worthy.

How can you follow a man
who knows not where he’s going?
How can you lift up his name
when he can’t even remember yours?

One thought on “Stop making heroes

  1. An actor is someone who pretends to be someone else and pretends that things are real when they are not. Stop making idols out of these silly people! Likewise, government authorities, church leaders, people in powerful positions…they’re just like us. Remember that.
