Heroes easily become trapped inside a cast
For others to enter in and fill on their own,
Their journeys are easy to observe and market,
But difficult to take, every hero spawns
A hundred lesser imitators, thousands of followers,
And millions who observe the hero passing.
Heroes can be worshipped, but better
For them to make something of an example,
How to walk calmly through the fire,
Worship elevates them and we forget
All their weaknesses and their mortality,
The thing which made them want to be immortal.
Heroes that are worshipped find themselves
Dying again, but in a another time,
Some are passed over like a bridge or ladder,
What inspired them gets the attention,
Others become new altars, new names for prayers,
Either way, the hero becomes a eunuch.
