Young Heroes

We were young heroes
Bright eyes
Soaring dreams

You can be whatever you want
They said
Dragon rider, spy, detective

Wooden sticks
Dirt clot wars
Blanket forts

We’ll never be like them
We said
Adults with stupid ties
And stupid lies

We were young heroes
Broken eyes
Sorrow’s darkness

Metal swords
Brown brick buildings
Big empty houses

You can be what’s best
They said
Doctor, lawyer, scientist

Why were we ever like them
We said
Kids with stupid toys
And their stupid noise
